MITSUBISHI GALANT STARTER PROBLEM

1995 Mitsubishi Galant • 13,900 miles

Hello, I have a 95 Galant. Yesterday when going to the store and coming back out to the car it wouldnt start. The battery was fine(lights still shined brightly) my first thought was the starter was bad when I realized the battery was fine. Anyways I found someone to jump start me even though I didnt think that was the problem and it still wouldnt start with the jump start. I thought for sure it was the starter now. I left it there over night and the next day went to look at where the starter was located and how big of a job it would be to replace it and I thought I would try to start it again and it started fine. I have no idea why it wouldnt start the day before(I tried probably about 20 or more times over a 30 minute period to start it)but Im leary to drive it anywhere now for fear it might happen again. The alternator is less then a year old. The car has 139,000 miles on it
