Thank You

Yesterday, I lost my pair of eyeglasses on my ride to work. 

But I am grateful.

For the person on the train who could opt to care less on a pair of old eyeglasses on the floor but he/she did and surrendered it to the lost and found section of Mukaigawara station;

For all my fellow commuters who could actually stomp on and crush it into pieces but did not;

For the workmates who offered words of assurance that I will be able to get my eyeglasses back;

For the mother who replied to her worried daughter's messages while on her work break instead of getting coffee (which she usually does) and go far as making inquiries to the station officer in Tachikawa about the lost pair of eyeglasses after work;

For the station officer in Tachikawa station who gave utmost assistance- making calls to numerous stations to locate the missing pair of eyeglasses,  consequently finding out that it might  possibly be in Mukaigawara station;

For the boyfriend who could just shrug it off and go home after a long day at work but accompanied his Japanese girlfriend (who could not speak Japanese) to Mukaigawara station to take a look;

For the station officer in Mukaigawara section who handed the eyeglasses back and assisted with the forms needed to be filled out; and

For the heavens, for showering my path with good people.

It may just be a pair of eyelasses, but still, I am grateful.

Thank you for making me see the world in a new  and brighter light.
