An act of kindness

Dear Editor:

In a week of true miracles and great happenings, I want to sincerely thank the nameless woman who found and returned my wallet from the El Jebel City Market parking lot.

After returning home, I realized that I had left my wallet in the shopping basket outside the store. A thousand things ran through my mind. It wasn’t the small amount of money in the wallet or the credit cards, driver’s license or personal checks, but the time and effort it would take to cancel cards, renew my license, etc. and start over again.

This very kind woman returned my wallet to City Market, but didn’t leave her name. To that unnamed lady, I am most thankful for your kindness and thoughtfulness. Another example of Roaring Fork Valley goodness.

Janet Johnson
