Lost & Found.

This late afternoon, I was in a bank on an off hour banking, when I found a palm smart phone on the customer desk. There was no one at that moment, and I knew the previous customer must had left it there without realising it. I waited for awhile but nobody seemed to turn up to search for this lost phone. In fact I was running short of time because I had another meeting in town. To play it safe, I took this phone along with me when I left the bank. As I was walking towards my car, I was pondering whether I should wait further for the rightful owner to call me on this phone. The phone might not be very expensive, but I was sure the information in the memory must be very important to this owner. I guessed this particular person should be very worried that the phone had been lost. Instead of moving on, I told myself I had to wait for the caller from this phone. True enough, half an hour later, a sweet young lady called. She sounded desperate and excited. I sensed she is the owner who later came to my car. Upon seeing her with her younger daughter, she managed to confirm and verify this phone. I handed back this phone to her, when she was so happy and delighted. I told her my job was to wait for the rightful owner to turn up. I assured her that she need not had to repay me. Perhaps she could not believe there are still many honest and sincere people around in this planet world. Her name is Amma who had to leave for Sudan tomorrow. I reminded them, "Please be careful my dear, you might not be so lucky again next time."

Although I had missed my appointment as fixed, I was equally satisfied because I had made another strangers happy and joyful. I had touched their hearts. The saying goes, "Happiness is to see others happy no matter when and where you are."

Specially to these two ladies, Amma & daughter I met today. "Do you know the relation between your two eyes? They blink together, move together, cry together, see things together and sleep together... even though they never see each other. Friendship should be just like that!! Life is like hell without friends" - Wishes was sent by a great friend, Hanafiah who cares.
