I found it!!!!

This past week has been the week of "I Found it!!"s. For two weeks I have not been able to find my scriptures. The last time I remember seeing them two weeks ago at church and I had searched everywhere for them and couldn't find them. (I pulled out my high school scriptures, for those who were wondering how on Earth I was able to do my daily scripture study.) Last Sunday, halfway through Sacrament Meeting I was so distracted by finding my scriptures, that I got up and went searching around the building. Lost and Found, not there. The library, not there either. Young Women room, nope. Young women closet, nada. The seminary closets, vanished! Where are they?!?! I also lost a very important stack of papers for work that I needed to mail to corporate verifying my dependents for my health insurance. If we don't mail this in by this Friday....we could lose coverage for my family!!! YIKES!!!! With all this was a tithing check I wrote and now couldn't find it. AAAUUGGHH!!! I looked everywhere!!!!! EVERYWHERE!!! I almost resorted to going through our "sensitive" trash (confidential trash) at work. I didn't know what I was going to do. AND where are my scriptures!!!!

So on Friday, we had a Young Women Recognition Night at the church and I happen to walk past the stand that they use in Gospel Doctrine and BEHOLD.....my scriptures!!!! YEAH!!!! With the tithing check still inside! Then last night Chris took out his folder thing he uses for High Council and BEHOLD......my insurance form, along with very important prescriptions that I've been meaning to get filled for the past two months! YEAH!!! What a relief.
As a side story, every time I clean out my purse I ALWAYS find a spoon in my purse. I tell Gabby every time because she can't believe it. So one time I cleaned out my purse in front of her....and yes...there was a spoon. The last time I cleaned out my purse...4 spoons. I kid you not.
I realized after all of this that I never did the "Primary" solution. You know.....when you lose something...pray and ask to find it. How many stories have we heard about little children praying to find their favorite toy....or help mom find her keys.....it never dawned on me. Shame on me.

Bobby is a firm believer in the lost and found prayer theory. I'm not as in tune, I guess. I never think to use a prayer to find anything, but he and the kids do, and it works every time!

So you need to tell me your secret. My keys and my W2s are still MIA!! AGHHH! But I'm glad to hear you found your stuff.

I don't get the spoon thing. That is really weird. Maybe Chris is just messing with your head!

I'm always eating cereal at work so I always take a spoon with me to work. I just keep forgetting to take them out.

Spoons, now that is odd.
