I went to an appointment this morning and my plan was to grab lunch after my appointment. I had a coupon for a free sandwich – no strings attached. I thought I would get my free sandwich and buy a soda. I go to grab for my wallet, and my wallet isn’t there.
When that happens, your first reaction is panic. “Did I leave my wallet somewhere?” “Did someone steal it?” are among some of the thoughts you have.
Then, I remembered, I took it out of my jeans last night so my jeans could be washed. It’s probably on the bench in the bedroom.
I took my sandwich to-go and headed home, worrying the entire way that I might be mistaken and my wallet really is missing. I drove carefully and cautiously home so not to draw attention to myself.
When I got home, I went straight to where I thought it might be. I didn’t see it right off the bat which would explain why it didn’t make it to my pocked. But, mingled in with some objects of similar texture and color it was there. Whew!
I ate my sandwich and then headed to my office to get some work done. I had received an e-mail requesting I teach on a few subjects later this month in the Church Service Missionary Photography meeting. Today happened to be a good day for getting that organized.
Their asking me to teach on the subject was great timing. Last night I had dreamt about teaching this subject and a good way to present the topic. I headed to the cyclorama table to take a picture that I would use in teaching the subject.
It will be an overly simplified example to teach what many find a very complex subject. The exciting thing is, it will work.
