Oh my gosh!

Oh my gosh!  Oh my gosh!

It began with a frantic, and I mean, frantic phone call from my sister.

Well, it actually began in September when I went wedding dress shopping with my sister. For her.  Not me.  She found a dress (for cheap) and bought it.  Then had buyer's remorse.  You know that feeling.  She returned it.  Unfortunately, they only offered her credit back.  Fast forward...the company is now out of business and my sister has to deal with a consulting company.  She needs the original receipt which she gave to me so her fiance wouldn't see it.

Problem.  Big problem.  I can't find it.

I have checked five purses, three wallets, two bins of papers, and went through my files in my filing cabinet.

I feel like a failure.   I have let my sister down.

I had an honest prayer with God and shared how it'd be nice to find it, but I also knew in my heart that I should just give her the money that she was out (it wasn't too much).  I went out to my car to check one more purse that was in my trunk (don't ask), I decided to clean out some of the papers that were on the floor in the back seat (I don't even have kids and my car is a mess!).  Lo and behold, as I unfolded a white piece of paper...IT WAS THE PAPER!!!!!!!

Skipping inside, and muttering, "Oh my gosh," over and over again, I called my sister and told her!

I am now a good (make that great) sister again...and hopefully she'll tell everyone on Facebook too!

Did you pay by credit card? If so, maybe the credit card company has something you can print out and use to show proof.

BTW: I see the things you post on Pinterest for your sister's wedding. Looks like you're doing a great job of helping!

Nice post. It makes me feel better about everything I lose. I am so glad you were able to find it.

Yeah! I do believe God answers prayers, even the little ones that don't touch on world peace. Happy wedding plans for your sister!

I've felt the panic you created in the beginning. Great voice throughout this piece. I'm glad you are back on the track of good sister. What a problem when a company goes out of business and you have credit there. Grrr!
