As usual of late, I’ve lost something important. The lost item doesn’t even belong to me. Yet, while searching for that, I found a whole stack of mail, including an Easter letter from a dear cousin, bills (good thing I know the schedule), and a great coupon to Joann’s Craft store from a few months ago. Just glad it wasn’t an invitation to a wedding or shower, since it is that season.
I’ve been losing far too many things lately. I feel dreadful about this bracelet that I need to repair for a woman at church. I HAVE to find it, because it’s not mine! It’s one thing to misplace my own items, but it’s a whole other thing to mess with another person’s stuff. Ack!
However, while looking for the jewelry, I found that I’m missing two other pieces of jewelry that need to be repaired as well as other jewelry that I’d like to wear for the summer. But I did find this pile of mail, my fancy camera battery charger, and a cookie from the Victorian Bakery (of course I ate it!).
Perhaps when I lose the next thing, I’ll find the last thing. Isn’t there a rule that something must always be lost?
Morale of the Story: Sometimes you have to lose one thing to find another thing.
