    What a wonderful inspiration story. Nothing is truly ever lost in life, only temporarily misplaced. Thanks for the reminder.

    I’m really appreciative to how you didn’t let the perceived misfortune ruin your visits.

    If you ever follow the stock market my advice is the same as your advice. Don’t let the ups and downs of the market negatively change your day. It all will come out in the wash eventually.

    Much love,

    Time warp. That’s it. Must have fallen into a time loop. (Hee hee) What a great story Joy. I am wondering what the significance of 6 means? Perhaps it is a sign from your mother.

      Ha! I hadn’t thought of the six weeks, six days and June (my birth month) being the sixth month. You might be right about the sign from mom. I often signed cards to mom and dad with “Love, Your #6.” Dad was all about numbers; he referred to us by our birth order as much as by our names. I’m sure your parents do the same. Although you will always be #1 in your family, I am honored to be my parent’s #6.

        This is how I thought the story would wrap up. A significance… A 6 truly does have a significance!! Now that is no coincidence

    I’m pretty sure you are infested with mischievous gnomes. But they seem nice enough to return things…eventually. I’m loving your blog!

      It took me a second to understand what you were talking about. I thought you were referring to the Sweet Connections blog rather than Lost and Found story. Yes, they just like to mess with me sometimes.
      Thanks for following me, Reannon Joy.

      Thank you, Ray. I truly am blessed with friends and family all over this great country of ours. It was not a mistake that I met you. God knew I needed another cheerleader. You have been so supportive and will never know how much you motivate me to keep writing.

    I’ve never heard of anyone having that kind of “luck” with losing then finding your diamond earrings. As Reannon said above, you must have gnomes traveling with you. I have the same trouble with earrings. I’ve even bought plastic/rubber stoppers to put on the back of the wire hoops. They are fairly cheap at Sally’s. My deal is I usually don’t wear the expensive ones except for special occaissions. At least you are enjoying wearing the diamonds!

      Yeah, it still amazes me that I still have the same pair I’ve worn for over ten years now. The most amazing one was when I lost it in the gym and found it six weeks later after Stanley and I had swept that floor 30 times and never saw it. It could have been swept up and thrown away with all that dust so many times.
      Thanks for sharing.
