Well, well, well...what have we here?

You know...

 

...how sometimes you bring something up, mention that it's been lost forever for whatever reason, and then a short time later...POOF...you find it?  Last week in my Monday Photo Shoot entry I mentioned a gift from my sister Chris, that at the time, I swore had been destroyed because I hadn't seen it for so long.  Then of course there's the fact that there was a time when several of my things got destroyed during wild teenage parties conducted at the house while certain adults were out of town.  Anyway....

Guess what I found today?

Yep.  Unbelievable.  Here I was last week going on about how it was destroyed (which it kinda was, the stand on the back is really messed up).  The other night I was thinking about this 'treasured' object of mine, and I recalled last seeing it in the cabinet with all my photo albums.  Today, while going through said cabinet, I picked up a stack of photo envelopes, and there it was.  YEA!!!!  It's really beat up, but bear in mind I've had it since Christmas 1978, I've moved over a dozen times since then, including a move to Sacramento for four years, then back here.  All things considered, it's in pretty good shape.

So Chris, whaddaya think of that, hmmm?  I've still got it!!!!!

So glad you found this obviously not destroyed or lost gift from your sister.  Perhaps it was just invisible - ha ha - like Harry Potter with his magic cape.  No really, I know what you mean, these days things just do seem to appear, or we somehow find them right after thinking about them, like the day after the thought. Ever wonder how that happens?  Perhaps our thoughts are more powerful than we will ever know.

What a neat gift...both from your sister and from fate (to find it again).

Very cool

I remember that now!  I had to see it to remember.  I don't remember where I got it from tho.  

I'm so glad you treasure these tokens I've given to you over the years.  Just goes to show how much you've ALWAYS meant to me, even when we are apart.  You were always there for me when no one else was.  I guess those tokens are my way of saying how much you mean to me.  Even at 40, you mean the world to me!

Love, your sis...
