almost forgot...


A thank you to St. Anthony, for an earring found. It was one of my favorites and has been missing for nearly 2 years. It wasn't expensive by any means, but I liked them. Anyhow, I've saved the match all this while hoping (and praying when I thought to) it would turn up. Found it in the very back of my sock drawer of all places while searching for a missing black sock. (still searching for the sock.)
Were you all raised to turn to St. Anthony for help in finding lost articles?

"Good St. Anthony, look around. Something's lost and must be found."

I'm constantly reminding the kids of this one.

Keep that extra sock. I haven't ever used the St. Anthony prayer, but should have on many occasions. Hope the antibiotics is doing the trick. Give a hug and kiss to all from us.

I have found that it works almost everytime...sometimes I think it just slows you down enough to look a little closer or remember a little detail that was forgotten. Thanks St. Anthony!

I have used the St. Anthony prayer since I was a child. My mom always used it. He has helped me of feeble mind find many things. Your earring story gives me hope. I lost a bracelet about a year and a half ago that I got on a trip to Athens, Greece with my son. Maybe it will turn up too.
