Amazing Grace

FOUND: I once was lost, but now I'm found.......
I received a phone call. It was my dear daddy. He said, "Guess what your mommy found?" I said, "What?" He had my curiosity peaked. "A doll." He said. We both began to laugh. I asked where at, and mom said the only place she hadn't looked. Dad told her he was going to call me and rat her out, and she threatened to drive by and sling her up under my porch. lol Of course, mom thought her long gone. She thought I accidently tossed her out with the trash on Christmas day. I began to second guess myself and had actually looked my house over. But nope, she was lost for sure. So, here she is. Happily dressed, donning a new bonnet and dress and apron and a new name Amazing Grace. She once was lost but thank goodness she's been found. Not making light of the name at all, she will forever remind me of God's Amazing Grace!!!
