... floats to the top
It never fails: something that is missing magically reappears on top of the heap after I needed it!
A dear friend, and fellow S'more, made everyone a Christmas stocking several years ago.
Could I find it when it was time to go to the S'mores Christmas retreat? NO! Did it show up in time to hang from my mantle at home? NO!
Yet, today, more than a month later, the stocking appears on top of a stack on a table outside my bedroom door. To be honest, there's a lot of stuff piled on that table.... but why couldn't I see it when I needed it?
You'd better believe it is going back in a safe and logical place in preparation for next year.
