On July 11, 2015, my husband and I celebrated our 17th wedding anniversary. This year was a much happier celebration than last year. Last year we went on a cruise- that should be a happy occassion- right? The night before the cruise we stayed at my sister-in-laws house in Myrtle Beach. The next morning, we got up and were so excited to drive to Charleston to get on the boat. As we were boarding the ship, I noticed that my wedding ring and wrap were not on my finger. I only had my wedding band on. This was strange to me because when I take off my rings to clean or wash dishes, etc, I take them all off. We were franticly backtracking our steps but didn't have much time because we had to board the ship. I called my neighbor to look at our house, but she did not see my rings. Several weeks ago my sister-in-law found the wrap on the floor while she was cleaning the Myrtle Beach house, so now only the diamond engagement ring was missing. This year on our annual trip to Myrtle Beach, we were excited to get the house for many reasons, one being a search for the diamond ring. As soon as we got to the house, we opened up the pull out sleeper sofa bed. Why the couch? Because Rob (dear hubby) had a dream that his mom who passed 5 years ago, told him it was in the couch. Guess what!!!! We found it. The crazy thing is that the mattress in the sofa bed is tightly wrapped in plastic from the manufacturer. How could my ring have wiggled it's way in there? I don't know, but I am happy to have my ring back and I am happy that Gladys still has words of wisdom for us.
