I am a huge fan of the TV show “Bones”. There is something about the quirky, dark humor of the show that appeals to my quirky, dark-humored side. I’m not sure what was going on with last week’s episode, but the show introduced the audience to a whole new set of characters. Any other “Bones” fans out there smell a spin-off in the works?
The good-looking main character of the new characters was described as being a “Seeker”. Apparently, he has an amazing knack for finding anyone & anything someone wishes to find. For a price, of course. He does this by using his intuition, common sense, and two larger-than-life sidekicks.
As I was watching the storyline unfold, I realized that I, too, am a “Seeker”. I don’t receive monetary compensation for my efforts and I certainly don’t have two kick-butt personal assistants by my side. I don’t seek criminals. I don’t seek missing loved-ones. I do, however, seek lost treasures. I do seek missing relics.
Specifically, what do I seek?
I seek socks. I seek misplaced homework on Friday mornings. I seek the missing stuffed-animal-of-the- week when it’s bedtime. I seek aphids for our latest ladybug “pet”. I seek shoes when we are late for school. I seek the TV remote so that I may use it to seek age-appropriate shows for my boys. I seek Legos. That vital missing piece, by the way, is usually found under the rear-end of the person assembling the most recent Lego set acquisition.
Some days, I seek solely my sanity.
It’s amazing to me how often my boys think I just know where something is… as if I am a superhero who obtained my superpower after being bitten by some sort of all-knowing insect.
In short, I am a Mom… therefore, I am a Seeker of the most important kind: I find those things that mean so much to the ones who mean the most to me.
Seek on, Seeker Mom!
