lesson learned

On Sunday afternoon I had a strong prompting to go out to the car and remove everything from it. 
 I seriously considered it in my mind but chose to brush the thought aside.

On Sunday night our car was broken into.  As I walked to my car on Monday morning, I was shocked to find a huge pile of shattered glass and the contents of our car scattered all over the place.  Immediately I thought about the small but sure prompting I had received the day before. If only I had listened. 

Although I was initially upset about the crime I can't help but be grateful for the very important lesson I learned.  Promptings from the Holy Ghost come; sometimes when we least expect them.  

This was a wake up call for me to be more aware of those promptings in my life.

Wow that's crazy. Good lesson to learn. What all was stolen?

Sorry Larissa! That stinks. I'm glad you have such a positive attitude about it. That is a lesson I think everyone needs to improve upon!

Oh no! Larissa that's terrible! I hope that you didn't have too much stolen but the damage alone is so unsettling.....
