A Cell Phone On The Curb
--by mlsmolens, posted Sep 25, 2007
I notice a shiny new cellphone lying on the curb, which someone had obviously dropped. We were a block away from the busy area of the Grove, and I thought for a moment - "If I leave it, someone could pick it up and not return it, or maybe the owner would return and retrace their steps to see where it might have dropped." On the other hand, I thought, "If I pick it up, for sure they will call and have their phone returned."
So I picked it up, walked the half mile back to my daugher's house, with Daniel on my head as I try to explain to him why I picked up the phone. While walking into the house, the phone rang, and a frantic woman's voice asked who I was, and why I picked up the phone. I calmed her down, explained why I picked it up, and gave her directions to the house.
When she arrived a few minutes later, before she could say anything, I handed her the phone with a smile card, and said to her to please give the card to someone else she does a similar good deed for. The look on her face, and how I felt inside, were beyond words, and this feeling cannot be purchased, bottled or duplicated without it coming from the heart!
G-d bless you with health and happiness.
