Yesterday our truck was stolen yesterday. I’m not making this up. It was there, and then either in the middle of the night, or after I left to take my girls to school it was gone. The timing is a bit foggy. What makes me smile is that I *think* it was there when we left for school. But, my neighbor said otherwise. So all day long I’ve thought, “How could I not notice the truck was missing?” And, “How did I not hear the truck being hoisted onto a tow truck at 2AM?” Crazy. Both scenarios.

Good news. We found it. The dealer has some sort of “location” device in the truck. They located it, notified the AMAZING sheriff’s department and they went and retrieved the truck, still on the tow truck waiting to be chopped for parts. In one day our truck was taken and returned.

I’m grateful and also completely unsettled at the same time. I’m sure you understand. I’ve landed somewhere here with Job,

The Lord gave, and the Lord has taken away; blessed be the name of the Lord. Job 1:21
