Lost and Found
Hello everyone! How was everything here? I love the new updates; how about you?
Anyway, I was kind of lazy the past few days, and I have reasons for it. I was not able to write an article, but I read some from time to time.
Yesterday, I was not in the mood for anything. I woke up on the wrong side of the bed. Do you have one of those days when you don't want to do anything and something pisses you off? That was what happened to me.
As I have said, I was not in the mood yesterday. The reason for it was that I felt pain in my wrist. I could not move my left hand; it felt like something would be torn inside if I forced myself to use it. I don't know if it is arthritis, but I told my husband to buy me medicine because the pain is unbearable.
The next thing that happened was when I was going to take a dump, and suddenly, there was no water running in the faucet. I was really about to lose my patience. Good thing there's still a half-bucket of water in the bathroom.
I kept my calm and told myself that nothing could go wrong—that's the end of it.
So I went on with cleaning my bedroom, doing the dishes, and cooking. After taking the medicine, the pain became bearable, so I was able to do my usual routine.
Later that afternoon, when I was about to have lunch, I found out that I was out of medicine, the one that I must take four times a day. So I immediately sent a message to my husband, told him about my concern, and he said that he would buy it and it wouldn't take a while. I waited for at least half an hour, and then he arrived. I could tell that something was wrong because it was written all over his face.
As I was about to ask what happened, he blurted out that his wallet was gone. It must have fallen out of his pocket after his trip to the drugstore. I really lost my patience that time, but I just kept it to myself because I knew that he was already annoyed and probably blaming himself for losing it, and I didn't want to make the situation worse.
In that wallet were his identification cards: voter's ID, PhilHealth, driver's license, and national ID. He was not concerned about the money; all he wanted back was his ID. At that moment, all we could hope for was that someone with a good heart would find his wallet and return it to us.
And just like that, our prayers were answered!
When he returned home later that day, he told me that he got his wallet back. Someone from a radio station (DYVR) called and told him that someone surrendered his wallet on their station. He was so relieved. Though the money was no longer there, at least he got his wallet back, and that's what's more important.
In life, there are times that our patience will be put to the test. It is inevitable. But let us keep in mind that when negative things happen, positive things will somehow emerge. There is nothing permanent in this world, not even problems. So stay calm and positive, and things will turn out just fine.
