Missing - Found

Yesterday, I was out with my mom and my wife going to dinner. While walking from the car to the restaurant, I noticed one of those MISSING posters that give all the vitals of someone who has disappeared. I hate seeing them, but I always am drawn to look and see who is missing.

My heart was lightened by the notice attached to the bottom: FOUND. The mom of the missing woman explained that on Mother's Day, she found her missing daughter after almost 2 years. I was heartened not just that the daughter was found, but also that the mother cared enough to attach the note so that people like me who worried would know that everything turned out okay.
