Lost | Five Minute Friday

Not all who wander quote


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?

Spare keys.

Land line.

Our kids hiding.

Memories shared.

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.

  1. 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. 😀


  2. 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:)


    1. 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.


  3. 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! 🙂


I love comments, but please keep your words respectful. Thank you.
