Pondering the Lost

You know…I was wondering…do we ever really lose anything? Sure, I’ve lost a slip of paper maybe or misplaced my keys only to have found them again (but I bet I’m not the only one to have done that!).

I was thinking about other “things” that we talk about as lost – lost articles of clothing, lost smiles (think “turn that frown upside down”), lost friendships, lost loves even – and I realized today that I’ve never really lost anything. I may not have something in particular at the moment but that doesn’t mean that it’s been forgoten about or been a product of the “oh well” syndrome. I look at it this way, there are some things that may not be a part of my life, they’ve been set aside “for now”, for whatever reason, but may some day turn up again. In fact, just today I received an e-mail from a long lost family member who I haven’t even received a Christmas card from in years. It was good to hear from her & I couldn’t wait to respond! Maybe that’s what got me thinking?? Hmmm….

Ok, that’s a lot more philosophical than I wanted to get BUT I was pondering my original question earlier. I’m curious what y’all think about it. I mean, do we ever really lose anything? Send me your thoughts, will ya?

    Hmmmm. Interesting. Maybe too philosophical for my fried brain right now. tee hee! What about lost weight? We certainly don’t want that to be found!
