But what happens when we adults lose something (usually more important/valuable)?
We would hope that some good soul won't take the adage "finders-keepers" to heart and instead try to find the rightful owner of a misplaced (or lost) item. More often, the items adults tend to misplace tend to be more critical than a toy, like keys, phones, electronics or papers. If that happens, we can only hope (and pray a lot) that the item is found and returned

Hopeful (and a bit frantic too), I asked at the apt management office on Wednesday if anything had been turned in from the gym. YES, an unknown someone had not only found the Kindle but turned it in. There was no info on the "returnee" so I couldn't thank him/her personally, but did so many times in my heart! I have found out that it was a young man and asked the office staff to convey my appreciation.
Double Gratitude this week from myself and Bill (the phone's owner)
Just Wondering — Have YOU ever had a similar experience ?
