Have you ever lost something and given up ever finding it, just to find it when you least expected?
A couple of years ago I had misplaced my Fisher Space pen that my wife had gotten me as an anniversary present. It was my perfect take anywhere pen.
At first there was some diligent searching but as time passed I had reconciled myself to the fact it was lost.
Now I usually park my pens and several of my watches on my bed side table. And for no particular reason my Fisher had a place of distinction with my DW8300. They just seemed to “go together”. So whenever I grabbed for that watch I would be reminded about my pen. And on occasion I would rummage around to see if it had magically turned up.
This past weekend I had made up my mind to replace my lost Space Pen with one of the Titanium versions. My wife didn’t seem to mind and even suggested that we could go to the pen store after Church and grab a bite of lunch while we were out. So as I get ready for church I grab a pair of pants that I have apparently not worn for a long long time. And in the pocket is my long lost space pen.
So I slapped on my Stargate, put my old friend back in my pocket, went to Church and took my wife to lunch. And I didn’t even mind not getting a new titanium version. For now………………..
