Happy Valentines Day to Me!!!!


Many of you heard last month I lost my wedding ring. As all you girls out there know this is a devastating loss... I looked everywhere and decided that I had lost it at Walmart (I had gone grocery shopping that night and noticed it gone when I got home). What a horrible place to lose something valuable, in fact, I can't think of a worse place! I called the store but no one had seen it.

At this point I was 93.6% sure I was never going to see it again but part of me just wanted to think I would magically find it when the snow melted.

Weeks have passed, today while cleaning I pulled out a grocery sack from under the sink and in the process dropped a pile of bags on the floor. I grab one and what do my eyes behold at the bottom MY RING!! No lie, in the bottom of a plastic Walmart bag there it sat.

The moral of my story is prayer is an amazing thing; I have been praying for weeks that it would show even though my odds were not good at all. Heavenly Father blessed me with an early Valentine's Day present and answered my pathetic pleas to find my ring. All is well in my world again.

Nothing makes you more nauseous than losing a wedding ring! I have lost mine as well said a little prayer and there it is! Sounds like all is well with you! How is the east coast?

I don't know how I missed that you had a blog..? I ended up finding it by nosily clicking on it from Phil & Nichole's and I'm so glad that I did! :)
I'm so glad you found your ring! The same thing happened to me last year only I thought I lost it in the snow in the church parking lot. A couple of weeks later after a lot of prayers, tears at the jewelry store (so much for insurance when you have to have the actual ring - if I had the ring I wouldn't have bought insurance for it!), and glum days I found it in my pants' pocket. Go figure!
Miss you guys!
