Life Lessons.

Every once in a while Heavenly Father likes to remind us he's still there. Today I was finishing my Christmas shopping, and I made my first stop at Costco. I made my purchases and placed them in the car and then drove to my next stop. I got out of the car and went to grab my purse and that is when I noticed that it was GONE! I tore the car apart hyperventilating and crying. I thought I was going to have a heart attack. So I drove back over to Costco breaking probably at least 10 traffic laws, praying that I would be able to find my purse amidst cursing like a sailor and looked all over the parking lot and in the carts. I then went into Costco bawling and still hyperventilating- I probably looked like a psycho crazy woman too because I was dressed in my workout clothes and my hair was all over the place and frantically asked them if anyone had seen my purse..................................................................................................and some angel HAD turned it in- untouched and in perfect condition! Heavenly Father ANSWERED my prayer!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Even while I was swearing in between!!!!!!!!!


Lessons Learned:
1. The Lord does indeed love us and Hears us as well as answers our prayers.
2. There are some really awesome and kind people out there who have charity enough to help someone like me out.
3. I should probably do my Christmas Shopping earlier- I might have prevented this problem.
3. Grad School actually kills brain cells-it does not make you smarter.

Whew! Thank goodness it was still there! It is SO true Heavenly Father has a special place in his heart for helping us spazzes find our purses when we lose them...if I had a dime for how many times I've lost mine and it "miraculously" shows up...! I'm glad your story has a happy ending :)
