‘This young man is Anthony, he works at the Piggly Wiggly on 78.

On Wednesday after work I went to Piggly Wiggly to buy a few things. Before I left, I pushed my buggy in the port that holds the buggies on the outside of the store. After going home, I realized at approximately 9:30 p.m. I couldn’t find my phone. I started to look for my wristlet that carried my money, but I couldn’t find that, either.

Earlier that morning, Shelisa had given me $200 cash to get our tags, and I had over $70 of my own money in there, including $10 worth of quarters. Tracing my steps, I realized the only place I had been was Piggly Wiggly.

I called them, and sure enough, my wristlet and phone were there. What is even more astonishing is, I had all my money in the wristlet and my iPhone! I asked the store manager who turned it in, and they said it was Anthony.

The picture below is Anthony. Anthony is a teenager at Central Park Christian. I went to bless Anthony today with $100, and I also called his mom Joyce to tell her what a great job she was doing with her son. His mom cried tears of joy.

We hear very little about kids when they do something positive, it’s always lots of talk about the bad things that happen. Let’s make this post go viral, to show other young men and ladies there is honor in doing the right thing.”
