and handed me my camera. I am sorry to say that I can’t remember her name since I was in the middle of talking with a potential client. (If you are reading this, THANK YOU AGAIN!) Here is what happened…
I got up this morning and was gathering my things to take to the show. “Where is my camera?” Frustrating! I went through every bag in my room twice and couldn’t find it. Did I leave it in my booth? No… I remembered taking pictures of the building after I set up my booth.
Well, it was time to leave so I decided to look for it later. As I walked to the show I thought it might be in my raincoat, the one place I didn’t check, and forgot about my camera and went on with my day.
About 2 pm my angel arrived, she was looking quizzically at my booth so I paused from watching a manufacturer looking through my portfolio and I asked if I could help her with anything. She asked if anyone in my booth had lost a camera. YES!
She found my camera in the hallway of my hotel. Thankfully I had taken several pictures of my booth so she looked through the the photos and came to find my booth. (CHA isn’t a small show either — there was some walking involved on her part!)
How awesome is that? My camera was a very nice, small, $250 digital camera that anyone could have enjoyed. But she knew the owner would be looking for it and went to great lengths to return it.
I believe people are inherently good and do the right thing – this was reaffirmed in a big way for me today. I hope you have angels in your life where you need them as well.
