My son had attended a local Catholic elementary school where I volunteered to watch the children during lunch in the cafeteria. One day I went to put on my disposable food preparation gloves and noticed the diamond in my engagement ring was missing. I was looking everywhere on the floor and the school receptionist came over to ask me what I was looking for. I told her, and she and the secretary held hands and prayed. Afterwards, I went home to look and decided to use my vacuum with a piece of old stocking on the head to see if I may have lost it in my bedroom. As I vacuumed I prayed to St. Anthony. I sat on my bed to look through the dust that accumulated on the stocking. All of a sudden a feeling came over me; I stopped, got up and walked over to a bath towel that was in front of my bedroom sliding door for my dogs’ wet feet. I turned over one corner of the towel and underneath was my diamond. I felt a prickle up my neck. I immediately called the school and was told that our principal, Sister Anne, over the loud speaker, just had all the children say a prayer for the lunch mom who lost her diamond. I know deep in my heart that our prayers were heard and answered.
