I seem to always have "odd" things happening in my life.
About 25 years ago, I had a female friend who had to have emergency surgery. She had given me her earrings to hold on to. They had been a graduation gift from a dear friend of hers and she didn't want to lose them.
I took the earrings and placed them into my pocket.
I lived about 65 miles away from the hospital. It had become very late and I called my brother, who lived in town, and asked him if I could sleep on his couch for the night.
I went into a very sound sleep. Woke up the next morning and was getting ready to go back to the hospital when I remembered the earrings.
They were no longer in my pocket.
I searched the couch thinking they may have fallen out. I searched under the couch, the living room and the rest of the house. I went through my car but I couldn't find the earrings any where.
I went to the hospital and told my friend that I had lost her earrings and appologized. She said it was ok.
Fast forward three years. I'm moving out of my home to a new home. I'm throwing a lot of stuff away. The stuff one collects when living in one place too long.
I was about to throw away this box that seemed to be filled with just paper. When I lifted the box I heard a rattle. I removed the paper and found a small black photography cylinder. The kind of thing that photographers used to store their film in.
My friend was a photographer so I thought perhaps it was some film that she had forgotten. When I opened up the container, there were her earrings.
I have no idea how they got there. I had lost the earrings three years before, 65 miles away and had never had a black cylinder. But there they were.
My friend was very happy to get them back.
