Are you using Microsoft Word? Or WordPad? Word uses either .doc or .docx as the file extension, WordPad uses .rtf or .txt. If you've already named & saved the file yesterday, that's the file you should be looking for. Chances are the original is still good but any changes you made today probably didn't 'stick'.

You should not have renamed the temp file. When you re-opened Word, it would have seen the temp file and asked it you wanted to open it.

Rename it back to the original temp file name and see if opening Word will see it again.
