I'm a believer

The last time I was at the lake---almost two weeks ago I lost one of my inside outside diamond rings---no idea when or where I lost it.  I called the company where I purchased them about 5 years ago to see if I could get a single replacement---I could but the price today for a single was almost what I paid for a pair when I bought them.  I decided to wait until I went through Dallas in August to make sure it was a match.
When we got to the lake on Friday we were getting ready to go put the jet skis in the water and I was walking toward the car slowly looking down---my husband asked what was taking me so long and I said that i was praying to St. Anthony to help me find my earring---I took two steps and there in the gravel was my earring.  It was a powerful moment for me---I've always believed in St, Anthony, the patron saint of lost things, but this was very emotional for me.  Wow!

Had several good rides on the jet skis, hooked on my bluebonnet cupboard piece---I'll be ready to post picture soon---just a little more background, and had a great dinner.

This morning we got up early and went crappie fishing at the dock---I caught 6 or 7 keepers so I guess it will be fish for dinner.

It is going to be another hot day today...we are heading back home tomorrow.

Happy Hooking!


  1. Hooray for St. Tony! I lost a ring - do you think he listens to Episcopalians?

  2. Can't hurt to try---I'll put in a good word for you too!

  3. Great story!! Glad you found your earring and that St. Anthony was listening and helped!!
    Sounds like you had a great weekend -- we went to the Jersey shore where we have a beach house, but it was too hot to leave the a/c, even at 7:30 a.m. when I first went to sit by the ocean and read...... I was there for a painfully long, hot hour and went back home. I really couldn't stand the heat any longer -- even when standing in the surf!
    Looking forward to seeing your new bluebonnet rug-hooking.....
    Have a safe trip home!
