After mulling it over throughout the evening and night, we decided we would head back to the park the next day. We rented a metal detector and bought a leaf rake. Cream fell asleep on the way there, so Mr. Cherry and Peachy set out first. While they started looking, I contacted our photographer to see if she had the time to look through the pictures and see if she could see my ring in any of them. I figured we might be able to narrow down where I lost it a little bit.
Mr. Cherry started at the most obvious place to look. The most obvious and also the hardest. On the leaf covered hillside where we had made a huge pile of leaves and thrown them at each other. When I arrived with Cream he and Peachy were raking the area that they remembered us sitting in. I tried my luck at the metal detector, but quickly found out why Mr. Cherry had opted for the rake. The detector would go off at every little scrap of metal.
I know that the ring is simply a symbol, but it is a symbol that means so much to me. I truly feel blessed that the Lord allowed us to find it again. It was the answer to my prayers.
