“If you haven’t learned anything new today, you are not paying attention….”
I did not even have to pay attention today. I found out that there are good people in the world—despite of—well, everything. Sometimes the tainted views overwhelm and one wonders what is to become of the world—things seems to be so out of kilter.
A package arrived addressed to my son. I knew immediately what it was, because I am, despite of—well, everything—an eternal optimist. It was his moleskin in which he writes phrases and things—and where he keeps his cards, money and license. He lost it last week in the heart of Manhattan.
I prayed, because that is what Catholic moms do—constantly. I think the rest of the family did too. In any event it was considered gone, but it wasn’t. It was in a tidy U-line package traveling through the U.S. Mail. Making its way through the wind, the rain, the sleet and the snow to our house. No return address and strangely, stamps that hadn’t even been cancelled. No indication whatsoever of where the package started its journey.
Anyway what a relief! And to whomever, thank you so much.
If you learned something new today–please let me know! And thanks for reading.
