Last week I lost my keys. I looked everywhere and couldn’t find them. A few days passed without me finding them, and I thought for sure they were gone for good.

Kevin loved keys, of course, so for amusement I kept thinking to myself that he was behind this. Maybe he was giggling somewhere because he took my keys and wouldn’t tell me where they were. I even said out loud a few times, “Kevin, where are my keys?” like I used to ask all the time when he would take them from me.

Then a few days ago I was out in the pool house garage and I looked over and saw them. They were sitting on the seat of our John Deere lawn mower, where he sat and played so often. Right where he might have left them.

Now, I’m not saying that I didn’t set them there and just didn’t remember doing so. But it sure did make me smile.

    I have no doubt in my mind Kevin is behind the keys and where you found them. For me it is a wonderful reminder that even though he is gone physically from our lives, he is here in spirit, waiting to be with us again. He watches over us all the time, and that makes him happy too. Thank you so much for sharing.

    That story gave me chills and a big smile.

    My keys are a daily reminder of Kevin. Sometimes my panic button goes off on my car at odd times and I say aloud, “Kevin!”

    Thanks for sharing this Matt – I enjoyed it & it made me smile 🙂
    It reminds me of the penny story – you know, when you find a penny on the ground it’s a way for someone in heaven to let you know they’re okay & thinking of you. You never know…….
