Serena Blogs From Zurich: Day 4

The missing Blackberry really hurt me...

Here's what happened: after Zürich, I went to Paris to relax. As I was leaving the hotel, I decided I wanted to go to go to the Fendi store. I saw some fabulous boots there that I thought would go great in my fall repertoire. Well, I also had to use the bathroom really badly... So the driver dropped me and my friend Paul off at the corner and we walked to the Fendi store. I asked the employee if I could use the bathroom. I went to the bathroom with my purse, then came out and looked at a dress. I never sat my purse down - I just was holding it. Later, I tried on the boots and put my purse down. I liked the boots so I decided to buy them. I picked up my purse and noticed my Blackberry was missing...

So I paid for the boots and then looked for the Blackberry. It was nowhere to be found. I called it and found out that it was turned off. Someone got it and turned it OFF! All of you out there that have Blackberries know that they're not easy to turn off - you have to purposely turn them off, or they will always stay on. Every time I called it I went straight to voicemail. Someone took it out of my purse and turned it off so when I called it I would not hear it ring. Who would do this people? I mean really! It's so upsetting, and I feel as though my privacy has just been violated. I feel raw and alone now that I don't have my BB. My BB is out there, all alone, cold and scared. She had a great life, a warm bed and a wonderful mom that took great care of her. I wish I could just see her one more time. I did not even get chance to say goodbye.

Needless to say I was super depressed, but also fairly calm. I never thought we would part. She's lost forever in Paris :( I still tear up when I think about her. So to make me feel better, Paul kept telling me we will find it, but I wonder if he really believed it himself. Anyways, he promised me and my mom a great dinner! And it would lift my spirits. Dinner definitely lifted my spirits as I love Thai food, and we went to this resturant called "Ginger". What's strange is that for Roland Garros (The French Open) I stay one block from Ginger and I've never been there. Nonetheless, for the first time in my life I had a glass (or two or three) of wine! I hate wine and I never drink wine. But I decided because I was in France I should give it a go. I'm growning up guys! Your lil' Serena is growing up!!

Okay so here's my saying of the day today:

Always stay positive. No matter what you are going through, know that God will never give you more than you can handle.

So no matter what you do, be positive. No matter what you face, look it straight in the eye, no matter how afraid you may be!

Love u!!
