Answer to a prayer

I'm documenting this so one day Sam will remember this....

This morning Sam woke up sad because he couldn't find his glasses. He looked everywhere and just couldn't find them. He asked me to look. I also tore up the bed, looked under things, no sign of them. He went back one more time to double check. Still no luck. I could tell he was still upset and I kept telling him he's just going to have to go to school without them. ( it was almost time for his bus). I finally asked Sam if he would like to say a prayer and I'll go look one more time. I was hoping he would say it, but he asked me to. So after the prayer I went back up to look and I was panicking because I wasn't having any luck still. As I was walking by the bathroom (after checking in there before) I checked one more time before going down the stairs, and as I was leaving the bathroom I looked behind the door and on the floor there they were!!! It was amazing to me and I felt the tears coming and I thanked Heavenly Father for helping us find them, but most importantly for giving Sam the faith that prayer does work and he can help us when we need him. I could barely talk to Sam after wards for being overwhelmed with the feeling that I had. A small little prayer was answered but probably a life changing moment for my Sam.

Great moment. I think it's so comforting to know that big lessons can come from such basic beliefs like prayer and faith. It shows me, too, that those everyday problems can be teaching moments. We just have to be ready to listen and to learn.
