Luckily, a stranger found the wallet and went to an extraordinary efforts to find my brother, calling the DMV and eventually San Francisco Art Institute because of Graham's school ID. The school gave the man Graham's email address, and they were able to get in contact. The man said he had visited California and loved it and felt an obligation to a fellow traveler. He kept the wallet safe while Graham and Maisie took a train from Jalsamar back to Jaipur to pick it up. It cost them the better part of a day and a lot of panic, but thanks to the stranger, Graham has all of his important documents and money back, though he will give the stranger a reward as thanks.

Up next, the two will travel to Jodhpur. It's really nice to think that there are kind and considerate people out there who will go out of their way to help a stranger. We should all be inspired by such acts of kindness!
In other news, I'm getting some favors of my own. I ordered these adorable business cards for absolutely free from vistaprint.
In other favors news, I have reached 75% of my $100.00 fundraising goal for the Free to Breathe 5K on March 26th thanks to a few generous donors. If you want to help out, there's still time.

Well, it's a beautiful weekend here in Louisiana. I'm enjoying an open window and some handpicked flowers that Brendan picked for me on our earlier walk. I put them in a tiny Thursday's Cottage jelly jar that I am reusing. We received some of their Raspberry Jam as part of our care package from Brendan's parents, and boy was it delicious! This picture perfectly illustrates why I love to hang on to glass jars, there are so many wonderful ways to reuse them.
