Lost! ....Found!...Whew!

8Either what woman having ten pieces of silver, if she lose one piece, doth not light a candle, and sweep the house, and seek diligently till she find it?
9And when she hath found it, she calleth her friends and her neighbours together, saying, Rejoice with me; for I have found the piece which I had lost.
10Likewise, I say unto you, there is joy in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner that repenteth. Luke 15:8-10

Yep. That pretty much described me.

Except, they didn't mention panic. I was kinda panicked.

I went up to the salon yesterday morning to do the book work. One of the deposits I was working on was my own. I went to get the money out of my purse and...

It wasn't there!


O.K., I distinctly remember putting it in my purse the night before. Did it fall out? (Please God, No!) I could sort of remember what I had done, but not exactly.

I called hubby, who was in his own panic trying to get to a doctor appointment. He looked around the house.


The world stopped. I went home to look for my self. In the vehicle, on the couch where I was when I dug out some new checks for him. I retraced my steps, praying all the time.

This was almost my whole week's income I had lost.

I got a reprimanding, "Go straight to the bank before you come home from now on!" (Don't worry, I will.)

I remembered putting everything into an envelope before putting it into my purse. Then I remembered that I took that envelope out that morning and put it with my bill pile.

There it is! And everything was still there. Cash, checks. Everything.

Thank you, God.

Rejoice with me, I have found what I had lost.

It once was lost, but now it's found...

The cutest part was the labels--"idiocy, irresponsibility"...THAT made me laugh. (And as tired as I am at 12:54A, that's hard to do...)

Our most recent lost item was one of the boys' Game Boys. We were moments from checking out of Disney's Polynesian Resort when Barry discovered Alexa had lost the Nintendo Game Boy she had borrowed to play a rousing game of electronic Candy Land. We tore the hotel room apart and dug through all of our 10already-packed suitcases, all to no avail. After asking the housekeeping staff to look out for it, we left thinking we may never see it again. But it showed up the next day when we unpacked the suitcase in which Alexa had forgotten she had tucked it. Eureaka...we have found it!

So glad everything's OK now...
