Losing Family Heirlooms (Almost)
|How Could I Lose Thee?|
I could tell you about how we went out with flashlights and walked around the yard, the street, the woods near my house and searched the whole house over...I could even tell you about how much we prayed begging God to help us find it and reminding Him how self-less we are since we do not want to cause any undue stress to my grandfather...Actually, we didn't really pray like the people in the video, since we're not Buddhists, but that was just a joke. Hehe. But we did pray, just not to Buddha. Anyway, I could also tell you how every day I would hopelessly go out for the mail and wander around with my head facing the ground hoping for a miracle like this, or this, or even this... But it was all to no avail. Miracles don't generally happen on our terms, you know?
To make a long story slightly less long I'll cut out segments of the past five days and just tell you the result. We went to visit some good folks at the Goodwyn residence in Rocky Point, NC, and after telling them the plight we were in (what a terrible plight indeed!) Mr. Goodwyn happened to have a metal detector and offered to come by and find our lost treasure.
At approximately 2.45 pm on Sunday, January 16th, Mr. Goodwyn came to our house and we began the search. Ten minutes later we stepped on the ring and danced around merrily for the return of our lost treasure!

|I think I was right over here...Yeah...Yeah!|
Here are some random blogs that I ran into while searching for some related content. Thanks!
