365 Reasons to Smile – Day 7

I am completely neurotic about misplacing things. When I can’t find my keys, the television remote or a hair brush, I immediately want anyone who is nearby to stop everything and help me search.

Needless to say, my husband and children don’t generally feel the same sense of urgency. Instead, they usually just feel annoyed.socks

That’s probably because I’m not the most organized person, so they get annoyed quite a bit.

But over the years, I’ve finally learned to accept that my efforts to find a missing sock are usually pointless.

Which is why I’m also incredibly excited when I actually find one.

Whether it has been clinging to a clean towel or hiding under the bed with the dust bunnies, matching that sock with its mate always makes me smile.
