If you follow me on FB, you have already heard this but for those of you that are not on FB. Today as I was engaging in some retail therapy to help celebrate that Sept. is my birthday month, I lost one of my favorite earrings. It was a silver dangle with a purple stone. My husband and I had purchased them in Hawaii and gave them to my Mom. When Mom passed away, I started wearing the earrings...every time I wore anything purple. Both my Mom and I loved the color purple, so it makes me really happy to wear these earrings....even though I don't usually wear silver. Anyway, while trying on clothes I realized I had lost one of them. We looked all over the store and when we did not discover the earring, I left my name and phone number in case it turned up.

I was really pretty depressed because I was not 100% sure I had lost it in that particular store and knew it was gone forever if I had lost it in the Mall that I had visited just before going to this store. The family went out to the hardware store to pick up some paint tonight and when I got home there was a message on the answering machine saying they had found my earring.

So...Rejoice with me, for that which was lost has been found!
