Find It Prayers

The kids and I took a delightful walk this late morning. Hannah walked and helped push the boys in the double stroller. We walked by this quaint little shop that has a lawn and some picnic benches and roses to smell, and asked the nice ladies that worked there if it would be ok if we ran around and explored some time. They said sure, it could be our own private park, any time. I said, "Thanks! We live just a couple blocks away and there isn't really a park close enough to walk to, so that would be great." We were having such a great morning. We slept in a little, I savored a cup of coffee, Hannah and I had a stellar phonics lesson, we sang some pretty silly songs together, and then decided we'd enjoy the cooler weather and take a stroll. I had put my cell phone down on the kids snack tray only for a moment. Well it was only supposed to be a moment. But I think I forgot to take it off. I know I forgot to stick it in the pocket that it was intended to go in with my keys. My keys were there. But where is my phone? Did a little two year old boy decide to chuck it into some bushes? We re-traced our steps. Hannah and I scanned the ground, feeling hot and tired, because the walked ended up being twice as long, and found nothing. I'm not even sure where our land line phone is or what to do now, besides wait for J to come home, and then call our phone provider to cancel service before some one bad finds it and decides to call their long-lost friends in Europe or Mexico. It'd be better if a car ran it over. My imagination is getting the best of me, as you can see. If you don't mind, I'd appreciate some prayers. I'm aware that in the scheme of things, this means nothing, but I'm a weak soul. Thanks. If you need to get a hold of me...Email me. Or call J. :)

You could come over here and use my phone to cancel your phone service. If there is some way I can do it for you by you emailing me your number then that could work too. Or you can wait for J. He'll be home in an hour or two right?

My next door neighbor is always home so I think I'm going to ask him to let me borrow their phone. Thanks though! But you know, I'm kind of torn because some one nice might find it and call my mom for me. What would you do? What's your risk assesment? :)

I would cancel the phone. Unless you think you maybe just misplaced it at home. Go to your neighbors and have your mom call the phone several times to see if you can hear it. Or to see if someone answers it and is nice. Otherwise call your company and cancel.

I used my dn's (dear neighbor - hee hee) phone. My phone is dead, thank God, so at least it's not being used, or it could be destroyed. Who knows? I called J and left him a message to cancel it. I *think* we have phone insurance. :)

Said a prayer that you would find your phone! Sorry you have to cancel your service. That would be incredibly frustrating. Good luck!
