It is curious how things get stuck in a person’s mind.  Like a sticky key on a keyboard.  You try to get away from it but it does not want to let go.  Keeps repeating itself.


In my mind anyhow.


So, yesterday, I lost a button off a sweater.  My favorite orange sweater.  Big square unique buttons.  They were one of the features that drew me to the sweater – that and the unique knit pattern.  And the color.

My mind is stuck.  I keep going over where it may have fallen off.  I noticed it when I came back from shopping.  I had put on an outer coat since it was pretty cold yesterday and I needed a bit extra coverage to keep the wind out.  I doubt I will ever find the lost button but that does not keep my mind from searching for it. 


Reminds me of the parable of the lost coin.  I wonder if people get stuck in God’s mind like my lost button has in mine.  Wonder if he just keeps looking for them till they are found or till… maybe he always keeps wondering when they will come home even if they never do.

  1. You should check buttons at Fabricland. You might be able to match it with a new one. At worst, you might be able to get similar ones to replace all of them so they match. But, my trick with new buttons if they’re not exactly the same, is to put the different one either at the very top or very bottom- wherever it won’t be noticed as much. (on shirts, it’s usually the topmost button, since I don’t close that one as a rule. for a sweater it would probably be at the bottom, where people look last)

    I think an extra button came with the sweater and I have stashed it away – somewhere. If I can’t find it, I guess I will be off to Fabricland for a whole new set.
