Random Act of Kindness

The other day we shared our story about how Number One Son left his iPod Touch in the skate park. A lesson was learned in how to take better care of you belongings as we not only assumed he was down one iPod Touch, but the photos, videos and memories that went with it. Yes, there are many people with worse problems in this world, but none the less... still a set back to us.

We learned a whole new lesson a few days later. There are many types of people in this world. Some unfortunately are like the person trying to sell an iPod Touch without headphones or a charger on Kijiji the day after Number One Son's goes missing and won't respond to e-mails when you reach out to them and explain the situation. Then there are others (a total anonymous stranger in this case) that see an opportunity to turn a frown upside down under the circumstances and do just that. After the word got out that we were on the hunt to find the missing device "Anonymous" sent a brand new iPod Touch our way. Mind blowing! As you can tell by the smile...this random act of kindness and generosity was greatly appreciated!

Plugging in the new device and seeing the option pop up to "restore" the 2,400+ photos and videos that were thought to be lost for good, was an added bonus and then some!

Thank you Anonymous! We will be sure to pay it forward!
