In the summer of 2008, I lost my engagement ring.
The engagement ring which was lovingly designed by the Tall One's great-grandfather for his great-grandmother.
It had a story and it was loved.
It slipped off my finger and fell in between the seat of my car..
down down the abyss..
We were trying to get 2 dogs, 2 five year old boys, 1 baby, a heaping pile of stuff into a boat in the middle of a thunder storm at the brink of dusk across a lake to an Island.
Weighing meltdown vs ring...I took my chances and left it.
The next day..I tried to reach for it and it snuck away from me and instantly disappeared.
So it stayed in my car..
Over the years I have pulled everything apart..
looking looking looking..
Huge plastic pieces of my car lay in our basement. 
Every time that I would get into my car..
I was reminded of it and my heart became heavy. 

Yesterday, the sun came out and the air became warm & sweet..
The Tall One decided to clean and wash his car..
I felt inspired and decided to do the same..
One last look..I thought..just one last look.

On March 18, 2000, I was lovingly given this ring by my future husband..
In the sky the sun was setting and moon was rising.
One of the best days of my life..

On March 18, 2012, I stretched out my fingers into the depths of my car and there she was..
Just like that..
a little miracle..
