Can a mistake be a mitzvah?

91) Update from my Friday, March 13th entry. Last week I had sent a thank you note to for the florescent light recycling project. I received a call Saturday night from the woman who received it. It turns out that she was not the right person and that there was another person in the synagogue with the same name. She loved the thank you note and wanted to call and let me know. I wrote a second thank you note to the rightful person. But I realized even doing a mitzvah for the wrong person can have positive results.

92) Called the Rebbetzin since unfortunately this week we aren’t going to have a visit. 😦

93) Called a friend whose grandmother had died to see how she was doing.
