I want to share a story with you that brought me great joy. It was an answered prayer from January 2019. One of my duties at work includes responding to customer service inquiries. On January 6th, 2019, I received a call from a lady looking for a guitar pic that her daughter had lost at our location. She explained that it was a significant and special guitar pic that someone had given her. Additionally, her daughter was serving in the US Military. After speaking with the mother and getting a description of the guitar pic I completed a search of the area in which her daughter had been but I could not find it. I wanted to reach back to her but due to our phone system I did not have a return number. I searched the internet but all I had was a name. Finally I searched FaceBook and found a name that matched. I sent a message along with a prayer that this was the correct person. I wanted to reach out to the daughter and say “thank you” for her military service and gift her a pin, not a replacement for the guitar pic but in memory of the guitar pic.
Time goes by and no response and I place this situation on a shelf, metaphorically speaking. Then on April 7th, 2020 I receive a message on FB saying I indeed had found the right person. I’m not sure who was happier, me for receiving her message or she for receiving mine. All I know for sure is God knew the timing was right. She thanked me and gave me her daughters address. I am happy to report that a letter along with a gift is in the mail today. It feels so good to help others, I wasn’t able to return her item but I was able to extend kindness to someone dealing with loss. In return, my heart is full ❤️.
Kindness grows simply by giving it away!
