Okay, so I wanted to share some great news...
I FOUND OUR WEDDING RINGS!
So, I have been praying so hard that I will be able to find our rings. They have been missing since the beginning of December when we sold our house, packed up, and moved out. I figured the rings had to be in a tin that I had put a few random things in. And I figured that tin had to be in a box with other stuff we had in our office.
Well, over the past few weeks, I have had a lot of thoughts come to my mind about places to look and boxes to try looking in, but so far I had not found them. When everything was moved out of our home, all of the boxes were supposed to be brought to my parents house and all of our furniture was to be taken to my brother's garage. I kept having a feeling that maybe the rings were somewhere in my brother's garage, but I still could not find the rings. For the most part, it was really just the furniture in there.
Last week, while I was searching for the rings, I came across the tin that I thought my rings were in... and I got really excited at first, but when I opened it, it was something else. I remembered that I had put my rings in something else to be able to use the tin for what it now contained. So... I started racking my brain trying to remember what other little contained I might have put my rings in.
Well, today, I stopped by my brother's house to say hello and felt compelled to go in the garage and look again... I kept thinking that it was hopeless to keep looking in there, but I still felt like I should go and see if there were any boxes that had ACCIDENTALLY been taken in there instead of being taken to my parents house. So, I started doing some climbing. I climbed in among the furniture and on top of some of it and I saw a box sitting down near the floor between some tall furniture pieces... so I went down and opened the box. The rings were not in there, but there were things in that box that I had also been looking for. So as I started to lift that box out of that hole, I noticed it was sitting on top of another bin / box that was all the way on the floor. So I grabbed both of those boxes and carried them over by my car. I was starting to have a really good feeling about this box that had been there without me knowing. The bin had written on it:
As soon as I read where the bin had come from, I was getting really excited. I opened up the bin and inside was a small cardboard box... so I opened up the small cardboard box and there was this long red box. As soon as I saw that long red box, my heart danced and I opened it up. Here is what I saw. :)
I have been on cloud nine ever since. It has been a great day and I have one less worry and stress on my mind. It has been a worry weighing me down for months... and it feels good to be able to remove that weight from my shoulders. Only a few people know of a very special experience I had with our rings in that first year after Aaron passed away. I will not share it now, but I have had an experience with our rings that definitely helped me to feel Aaron close and helped me to know he was around us. So, these wedding rings are more special than I can even explain.
I am grateful for this answer to my prayers and I am so grateful that we are able to ask for special blessings from a loving Father in Heaven... and He hears us. I am grateful for the help to find our rings. Prayer works!
Thanks to all of you who worried with me. :)
