We had a tropical storm during our stay and the day of the wedding was so stormy (luckily the rain passed by the time of the ceremony, but the wind was horrible still). Well, my bouquet got turned over with the horrible wind and the starfish fell out without my knowing until our butterfly release later. We searched for two days in the rocks by the lighthouse and the shore... but pretty much figured the wind (that continued the whole trip) or tide washed the little guy away. I was devastated and was already about to purchase a new guy (although it would never be the same). Well, on my last day of searching, my flip flops broke (very jagged rocks) and my hubby continued the search while I went back to change shoes (he's so amazing to realize how important this was to me). Well, as a side note, I've been a pretty nice bride to everyone, but holding all that stress in for the sake of composure has led me to treat my hubby not so great during the whole planning process. So while he was searching, he prayed to God asking if for once, he could be my hero (which by the way broke my heart and made me realize how unfair I had been to him these last few weeks), and five minutes later he brushed the little guy with his foot!!!! Praise the lord, he helped my baby find our starfish and he truly was my hero! It was so crazy, the starfish was face down where you had no chance of seeing any sparkle and in a deep crevice in the rocks. And it was in perfect condition! The lord really does work in mysterious ways! You all will see this story in the journal, but I have such terrible handwriting that I'd thought I'd share it here!
