To the Editor: BG woman thanks person who returned lost check

A few weeks ago, my husband and I were running errands in Bowling Green.  I had in my pocket a check made out to the WCCOA (Wood County Committee on Aging) in the amount of $40 for two classes for which I was going to sign up that day. After going to the credit union, Krogers, the Dollar Tree, and my son's home, I discovered the check was not in my pocket. I frantically retraced all my steps going back to every place I had been, and no one had found or turned in my check. In today's world of identity theft, I was naturally worried that some dishonest person would find it and have my name, address, bank account number and signature. So I quickly prayed that an honest person would find it and mail it back to me (no phone number on the check.) When we got home, my husband checked our mailbox and behind my outgoing mail, there sat my check! At first we thought I had accidently put it in the mailbox with the mail. After looking over the check, it was obvious that it had either been run over by a tire, or there was a shoeprint on it. A lightbulb moment:  someone had found it and brought it to our home!  My prayer was answered. Thank you to whomever you are who found my check and went the extra mile to locate and drive to my home (which is off the beaten path). There still are good and decent people out there, and God still answers prayers.  Thank you both.
