Now that's the holiday spirit!
A first grader recently lost his wallet at a Walmart in Warner Robins, Ga, and it wasn't any plain old wallet but a Minnesota Twins money holder!
Something a first grader would probably hold VERY dear!
Which is why we were so glad to hear about this little christmas miracle that occurred when another Walmart shopper named Eric Arnold found the wallet.
"My wife, myself and my kids were leaving Walmart and we just happened to see a wallet laying on the ground. I picked it up and was going to bring it inside to return, but when I looked inside the wallet, there was nothing but a handwritten piece of paper that had the kid's name and home address, his elementary school and that he was in first grade."
But instead of just returning the wallet the way anyone else would - Eric Arnold decided to add a little bit of holiday cheer to it!
He sent the wallet back, but pretended that he was Santa Claus! He even put his return of address as the North Pole!
Here's what the letter, with the "From the Desk of Santa Claus letterhead" said:
"Merry Christmas! I can't believe another year has gone by so quickly and it's almost time to visit you in [xxx] again. The elves have been very busy this year and I'll be bringing you something very special they created just for you. I'm sure you'll like it! P.S. - While I was making sure you and other girls and boys were being good at Walmart, I found your wallet and thought you would like it back."
Aww! We LOVE the creativity on display here!
Mr. Arnold is not sure if the first grader has received his wallet, but he did the random act of kindness to hopefully make the little guy's holiday just a little bit better!
We could all learn a thing or two about kindness from this Secret Santa!
