Veronica and I were walking along the streets of Gothenburg the other evening, when we came across a stuffed teddy bear lying on the cobblestone street.
Veronica commented with emotion only a mother could express “Aw! The poor child who lost this stuffed animal must be super sad.”
Then she said, “Hey! I wonder if it belongs to that family with the stroller that just passed us!”
So she turned around and caught up to the family. Within seconds all of them were heading back towards the ‘crime scene’.
Sure enough! The toy belonged to the little baby in the stroller. The family was very thankful that we made the effort to return their teddy bear.
Even doing a little act of kindness for a stranger, even if it’s a little thing like returning a lost teddy bear, sure makes you feel good inside.
