Last night after family night, me, Rocky, and Sarajane went out to get hot chocolate. We walked down to a Starbucks, and I hadn't been in there too long before my purse got taken right from under me! Some creepo decided to steal my purse right off me. Naturally, I freaked out - I ran home (practically flew) and called my parents. Within minutes everything had been canceled and taken care of. After they calmed me down, and my dad reassured me that I would be fine without an actual credit card for a few days, everyone here said a prayer and then went to see if they could find any parts of my purse/wallet near the Starbucks. Although there was no luck, I still appreciated the effort. Before I knew it, my favorite candy, hobnobs, and cookies were showing up on my bed from all my friends! Several people offered to lend me money until I was able to get my own (which has already been taken care of :) )
This morning after class, I came back to my room to see a brand new Diesel purse, exactly like the one that got stolen, sitting on my bed. Rocky, Sarajane, and Liz went and got me a new purse right when the store opened this morning! Oh wait there's more - they stocked the inside of it too! Something so horrible ended up to be not so bad after all. I feel so lucky to have such great friends here, and especially amazing family at home. It could have been much worse - my passport or my camera could have been in my purse as well. I am lucky, it could have been worse! I bet the person who stole it probably looks like this.
