We own a van, we own a jeep.
One car gone.
Police come, police look,
Police write a report
Declare a felony.
Hooray a rental car to ease pain.
Take diaper bag – bold
Airy car is very cold!
Back to normal
Another city living week
Sorry, I may be reading too many children’s books lately!
Two weeks ago on Tuesday, I came home from picking up Sam from preschool at 1:00 pm (I left our home at noon) to discover our 10 year old Jeep had been stolen.
Wednesday afternoon it was found, parked very deliberately and carefully, but illegally, two blocks away. A window was broken and the ignition had been tampered with. The Jeep was towed away to be repaired and our insurance company gave us a rental.
On Friday morning, the rental car was broken into! The only missing item was a diaper bag. Unfortunately for the thief it contained only diapers, wipes and miscellaneous baby items- nothing of significant monetary value.
God is so good to us. We were able to deal with this all with good humor, remembering that these are just possessions. We prayed for the thieves and for our neighborhood. We’re also grateful to the police who were helpful and kind and recovered our vehicle.
I’m especially grateful for Erica who after hearing about the theft replaced my handmade nursing cover – the most valuable item in the bag! Thank you, Erica!
