My lovely van came with two sets of keys. It's great to have two sets of keys...it's a safety net, per se. Keys are bound to be misplaced every now and then, but no need to worry, there's a back-up set.
Ahem, there was a back-up set.
We lost our second set of keys to the van.
Not one clue where they could be. Maybe they are in one of Ella's many purses. Maybe Evan stuffed them in a toy cement truck somewhere. Maybe I threw them out with the trash. Who knows.
We had given up looking for those keys.
And we guarded the one and only remaining set very carefully.
I probably went into panic mode, more than once, when they weren't where we thought they were.
We have no idea how long these keys have been missing. We only know that they are and that we have quit searching.
But this glorious fall brought us weather that is just a little nippy.
Nippy weather led hubby to put on a jacket that he most definitely hasn't worn since February or March.
And in the pocket of this jacket??
I wonder how many times we actually said 'Oh, they'll turn up someday.'
Well, they did. And I think I busted out a little happy dance. Nothing crazy, though, I'm Baptist. I am very excited that our safety net is back.
Have you ever misplaced something and given up the search? Did it turn up down the road?
Tell me your story!!
This is the day which the LORD hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it. Ps 118:24
