I got a plate in early August for my mouth. I thought that it would be fun to have one… but it wasn’t! I found out that it hurt for three days and then it got really annoying to have in, because you had to take it in and out all the time, when I ate. I’ve got used to it now though.
A few weeks later, I came home from swimming after school and found that I could not find my plate. 😦
I thought I had taken it out for swimming but I did not know for not know for sure … I told mum and dad that I had lost it and that I did not know where it was. We looked in all sorts of places, the bench, the table, my room, the music room, we even scanned the floors and behind the pillows on the couches, in my plate box and we even looked in my mum’s office, but there was no sign of it.
When we could not find it, we thought that we should try my school, because I thought that I may have taken it out at play time and dropped it.
At dinner time, my mum taught me that I had a responsibility to take care of my plate and that it was a good lesson for me and that in the future I needed to be more careful because it was really expensive to replace and I would have to use up nearly a year’s pocket money to pay for a replacement it, if I was to pay for it.
So I’ve been taught a good lesson!
After dinner dad went out to find the plate in the school ground. I didn’t go because it was too late and dark. So dad went out to my school with our (the family’s) torch.
After dinner I was impatient to see if dad had found the plate… but he hadn’t found it.
We had prayed all the time and hoped we would find it. We prayed that God would do what He did for my Kitty Kat in my Kitty Kat Story …
So, I was to go to the orthodontist the next day and I was very nervous.
The next day I went to school (as usual) and looked for my plate where I ate my lunch and snack… but it wasn’t there. It was class time and I got to go and look for my plate out side but it still was not there!
After school my mum picked me up. I was very nervous and didn’t want to go but mum had a surprise for me… and guess what it was… MY PLATE! What a surprise for me.
I was so relieved that I couldn’t wait to tell every-one what had happened and most kids were amazed and so was I!
GOD IS GOOD TO KIDS!!! 🙂
