Luck Finally Strikes

I have had a crazy few days again. Seems to be a never-ending story this.

I wrote last week how I lost my purse. Oh, yeas! With everything. Money, bank card, make-up, my phone, my mum´s phone. Yeas, I also had her phone in the bag. :/ And most importantly 2 pictures of my grandma, that I had received that day.

The anxiety was sky-high! To say at least.

I tought everything was long gone. When I was on the computer checking one of my 3 e-mail account. You know how it is. One personal. One business. One spam/adverts.

There in the subject line it said – I found your bag.

Can you imagine my heart rate? I started to shake and sweat immediately.

In the e-mail there was a man, who claimed to have found my purse and he wrote that I could phone him or e-mail him to get it back.

I called straight away. No, answer. I wrote an e-mail back. Waited whilst shaking, crying and sweating for around 10 minutes. No answer. Nothing.

Then it came to mind. FACEBOOK ! Everybody is on Facebook.

Searched for him. Found him. Wrote to him.

Then waited. Forever. And ever.

Not really. I looked back  at the time, it took 15 minutes. PING !!! The man answered. He had the bag and we arranged a place to meet.

I was extremely stressed ( who would have tought) but happy and nervous. I had to take a bus ride that takes an hour and what if there was nothing of value in the bag. So I asked him rather discreetly on the messenger, what was in the bag. And he wrote back – 2 phones , money, make-up etc.

I jumped on the bus, nervous but exited. I decided to not allow myself to be too happy. Just in case something would happen or that he would´n turn up.

That was one of the longest ride I have ever had.

But guess what? The man came. An older man, with his daughter and granddaughter. They came walking towards me with big smiles. Everything was in the bag. I gave him a big hug.

I wanted to give him/them a finder’s fee. They refused. The man just said : If this happened to me I would like someone to do the same. It is enough that I am happy in my heart, that I could help.

I started to cry when he said that. Not a lot of people have this attitude these days.

We run around, too busy with our own lives. We don´t aknowledge the people around us.

I might sound silly, but he gave me a bit of faith in humanity.

After I gave him another hug and said goodbye, I went smiling off to the bus station , sat down and was thinking of how amazing this man and his family was. And how incredible lucky I was.

And then I realised I was sitting next to this.


A massive baby with a clove !!!! What´s the chances?

Do good and good will happen.

I firmly belive in karma.

I firmly belive in my guardian angel. My grandma !
