What should I do?

Should I feel happy for what I had?
Should I feel sad for what I've lost?
Should I take the value of what I still have?
Or should I count the loss and its cost?

Both my daughter and I are taking inventory and finding things missing around our homes.....Neither of us knows quite what to do about it.

But I think my words apply to both tangible and intangible things.
