Please let me tell you a little about my recent vacation there. I was visiting for a week to celebrate my aunt’s 95th birthday.
On Friday, October 26th, my cousin and I visited the Goodwill Store on Trolley Road, and while trying on jackets, my purse went missing.
Of course I was in a state of panic, however, my story does have a happy ending. The Goodwill employees were very helpful and the Summerville Police were great. My purse was not found that Friday. On Saturday, after praying all night, I asked my cousin if we could return to the store and look one more time. I just had a feeling! She thought I was crazy, but humored me.
To our surprise, my purse was hanging over the hangers of one of the ugliest jackets ever. I could not believe that all my credit cards, drivers license, house key, check book were still all in tact. I had $507 in cash in my purse and when I got it back it was missing only $150.00.
Why someone would only take $150.00, I’ll never know, but I am very thankful. I hope that money helps them, as it would have been given as a reward anyway.
Thank you, Summerville, to proving to me that there are still miracles and good people on this earth. You have every right to be proud.
