It was somewhere around my 12th birthday when my mom bought me a teen devotional from a thrift store. I was flipping through the book when this picture fell out. I showed it to my mother. She told me to pray for her. So I did. And I have been, for years now.
I have always secretly hoped that I might meet her one day, and she’ll be living a pleasant, wonderful life.
FOUND by Mark Teeple on a sidewalk table outside Moriarty’s Pub, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
Cold rainy night, sampling local brews in Center City Philadelphia. Had to leave the pub several times to reload parking meter, each time I walk out and into the pub, I noticed this photo just laying on the patio table on the sidewalk. The wind never blew it away and it caught my eye several times. I remembered the FOUND site and decided to pick up the photo and submit it.
FOUND by Jennie Parker in a Qdoba in Ellicott City, Maryland
When I saw this wallet-sized picture on the ground, old and clearly battered, for some reason I knew I had to take it with me. It just seems like it was so special to somebody, I’d hate to see it go to waste.
My dad bought some property in this little town called Iola. There was an old barn and farmhouse on the property and I have found lots of cool antiques in the barn. I was helping to take the old sheetrock off the walls and this fell next to me in the biggest bedroom.
