Yesterday was a lucky day for me. The feeling stayed with me all day and woke me up this morning. Lucky because I found a pair of earrings, I thought were lost. I frequently misplace but rarely lose items. Unless you consider putting something in a very safe place never to be seen again.
These earrings, favorites of mine, were searched for time and again. I hadn’t put them in a secret spot, but I looked in jewelry cases, double checked coat pockets, handbags, toiletry bags. I crawled under couches, shook out bed sheets, used a flashlight around car seats. Eventually, I threw my hands up and said, “When they’re ready to be found, they’ll be found.”
A few years went by. I still couldn’t believe they were lost and phoned my sister asking, “Did you happen to find a pair of black onyx earrings?”
Purchased at an antique store on Beach Street in Daytona, they had history. Some might reference the jewelry as previously owned. The store identified them as estate jewelry.
Yesterday, while sorting through a basket kept in the bathroom for hairdryers, curling irons, and brushes they appeared, so tarnished I had to put my glasses on to identify them.
They were ready to be found.
It was a lucky day.

I had a similar experience with a watch that had sentimental value. It turned up in one of the many compartments of a travel bag. I ‘d searched the bag several times but with no luck until the watch was ready to be found.
Yes, ready to be found! . . . just saying, Thanks for commenting. Claudia
Well then I still have hope that my favorite earrings will eventually turn up somewhere, even though I have looked high and low…..and I don’t usually lose things which makes it even more frustrating!
Joni, It’s somewhere, right

Someone once told me that St. Anthony is the saint in charge of lost things, so I should pray to him, but so far it hasn’t worked!

Anytime I put things someplace safe, I can consider them lost, at least for a good length of time, sometimes forever. Those are beautiful earrings, though–both pairs.
Claudia, are you sure you are not talking about my wife!! We quite often look in all the same “SAFE” places!! Our SAFE place gets lost too!! My wife is so happy for you today!!
So I’m not alone . . . just saying
