Saturday Centus

I hope I do this right as I found this blog and just so wanted to try it so made a new blog of my own just for writing. 

My untied shoelace changed my life. As I leaned down to re-tie it, I kicked away a few leaves. When I turned my head slightly to look where the leaves had been, I was astonished to see a rubber-banded wad of hundred dollar bills nestled in a little indention in the muddy ground.
As I picked it up I thought of all the things I could do with the money and the temptation was there urging me to walk away and keep the money. Instead I walked into the little convenience store I was stopped at. She was in there with her small boy, frantically searching through her purse, looking for the money to purchase her items.  Searching turned to panic and I couldn’t stand it anymore.
“ Are you missing something?”
“Yes, my whole paycheck!”
She looked so terrified.
“Is this it? I found it outside.”
“Yes! Thank you!”
