One day, when my parents were here, we decided to go to Shrewsbury (about 45 min from Wrexham) for the day. On our way to the train station, I happened to notice a dirty envelope on the sidewalk. For some reason, it caught my eye, and I stopped and picked it up. When I looked inside, I saw a lot of money, and my heart started to beat a little faster. I decided not to count it all until we got to the police station, which was probably a good idea.
When we arrived at the station, the woman started counting, and as she counted, both of our eyes kept on getting larger and larger. It turned out that there was £750 in the envelope, which is over $1000, nearly two months income for me! Yikes! And I was told that if no one claimed it in a month, I would get to keep it. Of course, I immediately started praying that no one would claim it!
You can imagine that I was a little disappointed when I got a phone call from a woman saying that she wanted to call and say thank you for turning in the money. But she also said that I had restored her and her husband’s faith in humanity, which kinda makes up for a lot of things! Also, she managed a restaurant called The Lemon Tree and wanted to meet with me. When we met, she gave me £75 and a gift certificate for a meal for two.
Anyways, the point of this all was that last Sunday, I finally got to use the certificate! Lacey and I got all dressed up and went out for an amazing meal. It was so much fun to spend time with her, and such a blessing to have a free dinner out! Thank you Collette and Carmody!
