Lost and Found

I lost something today.

I didn’t even realize it was lost until someone asked about it.  When was the last time I saw it?

Yesterday.

I looked for it in the last place I saw it, and it wasn’t there.  I asked a couple other people who might know, but didn’t hear back from them.

And then I panicked.  It was ALWAYS where I could find it.  I had never entertained the possibility that it could be lost.

For 20 minutes, the earth stopped revolving.  My mind went to a very weird slow-motion place.  For the first time, I had to think about the fact that I may not find it again.

Then I heard back that someone had found it.

I cried for 10 minutes before I started breathing again.

Tell the people you love that you love them today.  Right now.  I’ll wait.

You really never know when your “lost” won’t be “found”.
