We always talk about what we’ve lost.
Lost our car keys.
Lost our cell phone.
Lost our kid in the store.
Lost a loved one.
Lost our memory.
Lost our way on a trip…or in life.
But what about what we have here and now?
Our kids hiding.
Photos to remind us when we can’t remember.
A way back.
I once was lost but now I am found.
Lost and found.
You can’t have one without the other.

What a great paradox of what we lose and what we already have. So true that we don’t ever have one without the other…thank you for this and I’m glad to have linked up next to you and find your beautiful blog. 😀
Thanks Meredith for taking the time to stop by and read my attempt at FMF.
great job jeri for your first time. welcome. this is one place that helps me a lot with my writing…helps me be more concise, less perfectionistice, nd just a little freer to write:)
Oh my gosh, I am not used to writing so quickly, and not correcting, refining my post! But it was fun. Thanks for taking the time to read it.
A land line? 😉
Glad you wrote today! What a great reminder to stay in the present and count our blessings! Popping over from #FMF.
Haha, yeah I don’t have a land line either anymore, but it fit. Thanks for stopping by.
OH yes…great reminder. Though I never seem to acknowledge the blessing of the spare key when I lock my keys inside the car. Probably b/c they’re in my purse, inside said locked car. lol! 🙂
Oh yes, Raquel! I’ve been there.
