Do You Believe In Miracles? Dejunking Rubberbands

rubber bandsOne reason my mom believes in miracles is because of a simple rubber band. There was a time when she was working in an office. The post office was very strict and had a firm rule that if you mailed several envelopes they had to be neatly clumped together by a rubber band. She was a rule follower and diligent at that. The company sent mail all during the week and she was the one to take that mail to the Post Office. During her time as a secretary she had seen many people yelled at by postal workers and she did not want that to happen to her.

On one of those trips to the post office, while getting out of her car, she realized with horror that she didn’t have a rubber band. This is when she started praying… Ohhh Lord, I really really really need a rubber band. Her palms began to sweat, her heart beating fast and there was that icky feeling of despair. Just as she stepped out of the car there was a BIG SHINY NEW PERFECT SIZE RUBBER BAND, right at her feet.

THANK YOU LORD!!!                                                                                            perfect rubber band

She sweetly told that story over the years to convince people that the small miracles matter.

So lets talk about rubber bands. We use them for all sorts of things. My husband used to take rubber bands and put them around his pants at the ankles while riding a bike. Kids use them as slingshots and I use them for.. yes, taking lots of mail to the post office.

Like mother, like daughter.

Rubber bands come and go. They are often in our mailbox and for sure in every junk drawer in every house around the world. When I feel like rubber bands are oozing out of every drawer I will often grab them and take them to work.

My husband bought a package of rubber bands years ago. That little plastic bag still ebb and flows with rubber bands. It’s kind of a mystery.

One thing about old rubber bands is they lose their elasticity. Then it’s easy to throw away.
