Divine Intervention

Funny story....had to share.

A few weeks ago after a "Soccer game"....I use quotes because I don't want to imply that she was actually "playing"...., Jenna was playing on the playground at the park. She was running around and digging in the sand...etc. and happened to find a ring. No...not a diamond or precious gem type of ring that Mommy would find interesting...this was just a stretchy beaded turquoise ring with a flower on it. There weren't many little girls on the playground and we couldn't locate anyone who was looking for this little buried ring...so we let her keep it. Little did we know the daily drama that would ensue over this little treasure.

Fast forward a few days and Jenna loses the ring at Tahoe Joes.....and she pitches a fit and cries until Daddy and Poppy manage to find it for her (under the hollow booth seat cusion). Then...a few days later she drops it at the store...another fit. Then she misplaces it at Mimi and Boppa's house......oh the HORROR!! Each time she loses it...we manage to find the blasted little thing.

Fast forward a few more days to yesterday....and Jenna is T-E-A-R-I-N-G the house apart looking for her "precious" (as Daddy calls it). I hear the whining...I see the tears....I know how heartbroken she is. I've just about given up all hope when I hear the loudest yell from our bedroom.....

"THANK YOU JESUS!!!!!!!!!!" booms Jenna. "THANK YOU OH THANK YOU THANK YOU JEEEEEEESUS!"

She had found the ring!

If I hadn't known better I would have thought she had regained the gift of sight on a televangilist tv show.
