Hey there, time traveller!

I was shopping in Osborne Village close to 9 p.m., and I went to my car to head home.
Upon arrival at my car, I realized I had lost my keys off my key grip. I quickly ran back to the last shop I was in, but the keys were not there. I carefully retraced my steps to no avail.
Luckily, I had my extra set with me.
When I got in my car, I found my keys in my console. I thought they must have slipped off when I was putting them in my purse.
I arrived home, and noticed a note stuck in my windshield wiper. Lo and behold, some wonderful person had found my keys (which had the actual key and command start device as well), opened the door and put the keys inside. Nothing was stolen, and my car was not taken for a joy ride. There was no name or address on the note.
I had recently lost a dear friend to cancer, and also had many current stories of good people having some bad times in their life. This truly kind act so lifted my spirits. I will keep this person’s note on my fridge, explaining how they found the keys as a constant reminder of the good that is amongst us every day and can be easily forgotten.
May many good things happen to that person as well.
