We are always so quick to share horrible experiences all over our social media pages, and to anyone that will listen really. Just look at your newsfeeds, are they predominantly positive or negative? Let’s change that! Remember, our opinions and perceptions are built on what we allow in. I wanted to share an incredible experience we had after our vacation in St. George, Utah. Just know that good people still exist!
Good People Still Exist…I Promise!
I’m not positive, but I think this is where our son’s Kindle Fire decided to go on its own adventure. Honestly, I’m actually glad it decided to grow a pair of legs because our kids immersed themselves in nature instead of electronics.
If you ever plan on making a trip to Zion National Park, I highly suggest stopping here first. There were about 4 people in front of me and their staff helped every single party with questions about the best trails based on skill level and how to map out their day to get the most out of it. I’m sure they answer questions like these all day, but they treated every group with such enthusiasm, I was impressed! But, that’s not the story I wanted to share.
The incredible thing was he never asked for it for the remainder of the trip! That also meant we never noticed its absence until we got home, over a 400-mile drive away. Honestly, we figured we would never see it again, so Santa decided to add it to his gift list. The reality is we didn’t have much faith that someone would find it and turn it in. Well, that’s where we were wrong. Good people still exist!
I was cleaning out an e-mail account that I rarely ever look at, it’s the “shopping” e-mail that gets way too much junk. Well, there was an e-mail that caught my eye with the subject line “Christine’s Kindle Fire.” Someone had indeed found my son’s Kindle Fire, and had reached out to get it returned! It simply stated, “I have an Amazon device registered to this email and would like to return it to you. I’m sure some kid has been missing it. Please let me know how I can return it to you.”
We were amazed that someone took the time to find it’s rightful owner. Someone found our tablet and saw a child who would be missing it. I know it might sound silly, but it reminded me that good people still exist!
We learned all about our Kindle’s adventure and already knew that little device had gone solo for a reason, maybe it was time to make another family smile. So that’s where it will stay. You see, that Kindle was once his older sister’s, then it was his, and now it’s time for it to bring laughs to a new home.
Thank you so much for trying to reconnect a little boy with his “toy.” It absolutely sounds like it’s found a home that’s perfect for it.
