A Needle In A Haystack...

I think all of you wonderful people brought me good luck yesterday. After I posted about what a crappy day I was having ... and ... I lost one of my favorite earrings, I retraced my steps. Et voila! I found my earring. If you know where I had lost it, you would say it was almost impossible to find it. I work across the street from a fairly good-sized mall. I had gone over there on my coffee break to buy a few things, and I had visited several stores. I retraced my steps from my desk, all through my building, along the sidewalk, across the street, through the mall corridors, through every store I visited. And there it was -- lying on the floor in front of the cashier's desk in the very last store in the mall.

My earring!

No one had stepped on it or taken it. It was lying there, waiting for me to retrieve it. It is now happily reunited with its partner -- and my ears.

Suffice it to say, yesterday was not the best day for me, but today is much better -- and I have all of you to thank. It's amazing, when we are feeling a bit down, how much encouragement from other people will make us feel better. Thank you! I wish I had the time to visit all of your blogs, and I am making my way through the list. I think you are all fabulous beyond words! Here is a bouquet of spring tulips -- just for you!

I am so happy that you found your earring and I am saying thank you for the tulips (they're lovely) but most of all I am happy and thankful that you posted a blog today - I was a bit worried after your blog yesterday.

As Maria Grever & Stanley Adams once wrote, "What a difference a day makes, twenty-four little hours, brought the sun and the flowers where there used to be rain." So happy you found it! (A case of due diligence and maybe a little of St. Anthony working overtime.) ;-) The tulips are so pretty - thank you!

Lorna said...

Jo--- that, to me, is a small miracle in this large universe. It also involves some floor sweeper not giving due diligence to his job! :-) Stop me now! Stop me now before I start to laugh. :-) You know that I am happy for you, though, right? Right? :-) :-) :-)

(I would not hire those floor cleaners for MY house! :-) ))))

Amazing when that happens. Synchonicity...however it's spelled...today I drove off to work after getting my income taxes ready to mail. And, leaving them on the roof of my car as I sped off. An hour later, backtracking in a panic, I saw them by the side of the road. Thank you, God! And thank you for bringing back Jo's earrings to her too! By the way, Bagman thinks they probably look great on you!
