An incredible story which will restore your faith in humanity.

Let me start by saying yesterday I thought I lost my debit card.

It's 2:30 a.m., I'm heading to work and I stop at the local doughnut shop to grab a chai tea to wake me up. I go to pay and I notice my debit card is gone.

I panic. I thankfully had another card on me or I would have been tired and upset instead of just upset. As I drive away from the drive-thru, I call my husband, wake him up and insist he search the entire house for my card.

It's not there.

I'm now running through my purse, pulled over on the side of the road, praying that I would find it. Thankfully, I did. It was right where it belonged, just behind my insurance card.

I couldn't believe I missed it during my many searches, but I was so thankful I didn't have to go through the hassle of reporting it lost and getting a new one.

Trust me when I say that even if someone was to get a hold of my card, they couldn't do much damage. But imagine if someone got a hold of $12,000 in cash!

It's not everyday that someone is carrying around $12,000 in cash, but according to WREX, a 73-year-old woman named Norberta Pickett had that kind of cash in her purse.

The reason being, her and her husband were roaming Valley View Mall in La Crosse as they were looking to purchase a camper..

On accident, Norberta forgot her purse, full of cash, at a restroom at the Hallmark Store.

An honest employee found the purse and turned it over to the police.

Now I don't know if the employee happened to look in the purse and see the giant wad of cash, but if the employee did, kudos to them. I'm sure it would have been extremely tempting to not grab the money and run.

The police were then able to contact Norberta thanks to her identification in the purse and was able to return it to her.

In the true fashion of being a sweet granny, Norberta wasn't concerned about the money being returned, but was happy the photos of her grandchildren were returned.
