The night before I had packed meticulously for my upcoming trip. For those of you who know me, know that I HATE packing. Nonetheless this was an important weekend so I made sure nothing was forgotten. It was a regular workday and I came home to shower, grab my bags, and jet to the airport. In lieu of the fact that I had more then enough time and of course my frugality I took the good ol’ M60 to the airport… It’s only a 30-minute commute and I actually enjoy it….
My bus ride was delightful and I made it to the airport with time to spare…. I walked to the smiling TSA agent reached for my ID and boarding pass to realize my wallet was GONE! Let me remind you I was extra meticulous this trip and I know I had placed my wallet back in my left hand pocket of my coat after using my metro card. Tears filled my eyes and my nerves got the best of me…. the hysterics began. ( lol I am a little shamed I promise it could have been a scene out of a movie.) The TSA agents, NYPD, and JetBlue personnel could not have been any nicer and compassionate. I filled out a police report, canceled my cards, sobbed to my mom, and lastly missed my flight.
It was a sad Friday for me! 🙁
I was picked up by the fabulous Crusoe family, got on the 6 am flight, shot a fabulous wedding, had a family Sunday, made it back to the city and yesterday almost a week to the day I received a anonymous package at work…I wasn’t expecting anything, so to my surprise it was most of the contents of my missing wallet. All I could do is stare at it in bewilderment. Though everything of “value” to someone else was obviously not included everything of “value” to me was. I called my mom immediately and told her the great news and she said, ” I told you my prayers for you would be answered, the Lord always keeps his children.” 🙂
So thank you to the anonymous person who was kind enough mail the contents back to me. You totally made my day and restored my faith that there are still good people out there.
Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!!
