Six Word Fridays: Found









Just this morning I was searching.
Searching for something haphazardly set aside.
Now, because my search was unsuccessful,
We'll consider that item officially lost.

Who knows when we'll find it.
Probably when we don't need it.
And it will irk me terribly.
Why does that always happen, anyway?

It makes me so very frustrated.
But then I start to think.
I feel lost on occasion, too.
And I find myself unexpectedly, too.

I find myself in little moments.
In my morning cup of coffee,
In a cuddle from my children,
In a smile from my husband.

Maybe we lose things on purpose.
So we can recall their necessity.
Or just so we can reflect
On what things really need finding.

finding contentment instead of our shoes.
I will buy into that one.

I think we can all relate to finding ourselves. So often we are just wife or mommy, if we don't find ourselves in the little moments we will lose who we are forever.

Love the last paragraph. I do sometimes think we lose our way just to find a purpose in our life.


Have a good holiday weekend!

Losing things needfully, finding deeper meaning.
Being glad for the eventual finding,
Not worrying so over the losing.

That's a lesson I should learn.

That last paragraph was terrific! You said a lot with six words!

My goodness! Well done! You said so much here, so much that so many of us can relate to.

Wonderful words and oh, so true.
We lose sight of what we
really need while searching for things
we may never need to find.

I like the way you string words together!

Thanks for sharing,
