Did you read my post from yesterday? If you didn't, you should because this one will make a lot more sense!
This evening, my family and I were doing a promotional shoot for Bright Lights Windsor through an amazing company called Suede Productions. We strolled, we laughed and played the part of an extremely happy family enjoying the beautiful light display. It wasn't that hard since the set up is gorgeous, the night was reasonably chilly and we love each other.
Lucy and I were finishing up the shoot on the train and when we returned Kareem, my husband, was missing. I asked my older children where their dad was at and they told me he had gone to the bathroom.
Now, I know public washrooms are not that great but when he returned he looked positively ill. He told me that he had lost his wallet somewhere along the pathway during our hour and a half photo shoot. The baby had enough by this time so we went back to the car. He had already checked in with the auxiliary police so there was nothing left to do with a fussy baby in tow.
When we got to the car, I told Kareem and the kids to go back and take a look while I warmed the baby up in the car. They were gone for about 10 minutes and returned heavy hearted and empty handed.
We drove home and not a word was said. What could we say? When we got home, Kareem went off to double check and I told the kids that we should send out a prayer message to the person that had their dad's wallet.
My daughter said that was all she had been doing during the ride home. I told her that I had been doing the same thing. My son said that he had called on the archangel who helps you find things. Ummmm...who is that? He told me he didn't know that name but had called on this angel before. Whatever works!
I brought Lucy up to get her ready for bed and all the while I sent out a message. No longer a prayer but now a positive intention/affirmation..."He will get his wallet back".
Not even 10 minutes after we had gotten home, Kareem's phone rang. It was the lost and found at the park. His wallet had been turned in. Kareem left the house with his shoes in his hands. LOL!
When he got back, he was so thankful and relieved. Not only had the wallet been returned but so was the $160 USD he had inside.
I guess I'm not the only one who does what is right because it is right. Talk about a teachable moment for the kids right?!
Thank you to the person who found my husband's wallet and turned it in. Blessings to you!
When I experience something that makes me think, allows me to learn or provides an opportunity for growth, I'd like to share it with you.
