A 2″ x 5″ Problem

Phone?

Oh no! Did I leave my phone in the car again?  I quickly ran out to my car to check.  Not there.  Yikes. I walked back in to the building and combed through my jacket pockets, my backpack, and my lunch bag.  No luck.  Could I have possibly left it on my desk in the other building?  I had left in a hurry to get to this meeting so that was a good possibility.  The question hung in the air leaving me feeling quite unsettled.  With the meeting beginning in two minutes I had to make the difficult decision to let go of my missing phone problem and focus on my meeting.  

One hour later…

I hopped in my car and zoomed back across town.  While I was driving all I could dwell on was all I use my phone for, from calling home, to morning wake up alarm, to my daily calendar.  What would I do if my phone wasn’t found? I tried to push that thought from my mind, hoping and praying that my phone would be found sitting on my desk. I arrived at my office and sure enough, there sat my phone.  Emergency avoided.  Breathing again I wondered how a little 2″ x 5″ box could cause such a commotion on a Tuesday afternoon.

  1. Oh, we’ve all been there. It’s so hard when we have to postpone the panic until after other obligations are met. So glad your emergency was avoided and your phone was found. A blessing indeed.
