Lost and Found
Arista and I went to our ward's playgroup yesterday morning, and when I was getting into the car I saw I had a voicemail message. I got into the car and started listening to the message. It was an officer, I figured he was going to tell me that they were still working on our case. Instead he said that my weddings rings have been recovered, and that I could pick them up in a few hours at the police station. I started screaming, Arista started screaming, I had to pull over the car so I didn't get in an accident I was freaking out so badly. I called Chris at work and screamed! Of course he thought something horrible happened, but I slowed down and told him the rings were found he was just as ecstatic as I was.
The officer called me back 30 minutes later to give me my property number and told me that the rings were found in an envelope on the fitness directors desk, after he had returned from a break. We are thinking the robber got spooked since the police were going around asking residents about it. We are not sure if they will continue to search for the robber or let it go since the rings have been given back.
Sue, Arista and I went to pick them up and sure enough they are the right rings. I am going to take them in to get cleaned, and have the diamonds checked before I wear them again. For now they are sitting pretty in their comfy box safe and sound.
Our faith has been restored and strengthened throughout this ordeal. The Lord really does watch over us, and help us even in things that seem hopeless at times. We are grateful for the guilt the robber felt, and for his/her honesty in returning them. Miracles do happen!
