A Christmas Miracle

After having listened to my parents periodic freaking out about my missing ID and how we are going to have to board an airplane to Hawaii  in a week,

Just after having checked the DMV website to find out how to get a replacement driver’s license, 

Just after having called my credit card company to find out if new and bogus charges had been made on my credit card, 

A Christmas miracle occurred.

Ian found my wallet.

In a drawer.

In the kitchen.

Which is the last place I saw it last week when tipping the gardeners.

Where I looked numerous times.

Poorly, apparently.

I had looked under couches.
On my desk.
In toy bins.
In craft bins.
In drawers.
Under laundry.
In couch cushions.
In my car.
In my coats.
In my pockets.
In my purses.
In Asher’s room.
On the bookshelves.
On top of the fridge.
And, last but not least,
In the week-old kitchen rubbish in the can!

Ian is my hero.
