A couple of months ago I lost the small point-and-shoot camera that I usually carry in my purse. I didn’t realize I had lost it. I thought it was in the house somewhere and it would turn up eventually.
Out of the blue I got an email from someone who had my camera! It was at the front desk where my daughter takes ballet lessons. Weeks had gone by with no one claiming it, and she was trying to find the person it belonged to.
I am so grateful to the woman who made the extra effort to return my camera. I realize this whole situation would have been easier if I had put my name and phone number on it like I know I should.
This got me thinking about simple things I know to do but haven’t done yet.
Therefore, I promise to:
1. Label my camera with my name and phone number.
2. Memorize my husband’s phone number instead of relying on automatic dial.
3. Hide a spare house key.
(There are more things I need to do, but I’m only committing to three this week.)
