Letter: Good Samaritan returns missing wallet

Dear editor, it's good to know there are still good people out there.

Dear editor,

I'm writing this letter because it's nice to hear good news and I have always been the type of person to pass it forward, whether it's buying someone's coffee, groceries or nominating families for something.

A few weeks ago, karma came back to me in the form of a man named Chima. First and foremost, I'm a stay-at-home mom of a nine-year-old, a two-year-old and a one-year-old that I home school. I also home-school a friend's son. Needless to say, life is very busy.

On a recent Wednesday, I went shopping at the Superstore in Airdrie and rushed home. I got unpacked, got my baby down for a nap, sat down and tried to complete some homework when all of a sudden my doorbell rang. The first thing that popped into my head was that I didn't remember ordering anything from Amazon.

Anyway, I answered the door to a man standing there. He asked if I was Ashley and I said yes. Then, he handed me my wallet, which I had left in the cart at Superstore. He had found my wallet and driven all the way to my house to drop it off for me.

I bawled like a baby and thanked him up and down for his generosity. I asked him if it was OK to tell the story using his name and he said yes. Later, I made him a gift basket of goodies as a further showing of my gratitude.

It's good to know there are still good people out there.
