It's official. I'm the biggest ding-a-ling in California, perhaps the country.
When I awoke this morning, I noted there was already light coming through the slats in my blinds. Oh, no! I had overslept. I had several things to do before I went to the church for the Home For The Holiday event in which I would be participating.
I hurried out of bed. Somewhere between the bed and the bathroom it hit me. Today is Friday, not Saturday! My heart has calmed down a bit and I am now sitting here writing my blog. I'm thankful I didn't get dressed and rush to the church. It would have been quite embarrassing to try and explain to the staff why I was there for a meeting that is tomorrow. I make my life so complicated. And they say it gets worse as you get older. I fear what my life will hold!
While being forgetful does complicate my life, there are times I want to be forgetful. I want to be forgetful when someone says unkind words about me. I want to be forgetful when my husband and I have had a "discussion" and he hurts my feelings. I want to be forgetful when I am ignored by a person I thought to be a friend. Forgetting those offenses is part of living out what I say I am, a Christian. As they say, "Don't just talk the talk. Walk the walk."
Hoping I talk AND walk the Christian life today, Gloria
