Yesterday I was running some Christmas related errands at the local shopping center. I cut across the parking lot to head into the pharmacy for ribbon which they didn’t have. As I reached the landscaped island I noticed two pennies laying in the mulch. I always pick up found change. Two steps further I saw this: a 10 month chip. In the parking lot near the liquor store.
I spent a moment figuring out exactly what it was and then I had a sad feeling. I’m sure this was hard earned. I hope the person who lost it dropped it by mistake when fumbling for their keys. I hope they weren’t making a choice to throw their hard earned 10 months of sobriety into the gutter. Prayers for them and their struggles. I hope they get the 11 months chip.
