Underwear and Brain Wiring

I think there was a short circuit in my brain when God created me. I can't remember anything past a few minutes. I don't think it's Alzheimer's. I've had it since childhood. What kid do you know who forgets to wear their underwear?

Yep. You read it right. I went to school without my underwear. Didn't even know it until I had to go to the restroom. After the potty break, I prayed all day there would be no wind to raise my skirt and the fourteen starched slips I had on under it. I walked funny the rest of the day, too. It's not easy to keep your legs together and walk. You just try it!

It's getting worse as I get older. I'll be talking and my thoughts go hide somewhere in my brain and dare me to find them. I'll go into a room to do something and wonder what on earth I'm there for. The worst is when I'm teaching my Bible study class and what I was about to say just floats away into the grey matter never to be heard from again.

At least I haven't forgotten the underwear again. A slip or two over the years but thankfully I've managed to remember underwear. I HAVE checked occasionally while out since I don't remember if I did put it on or not!

I keep telling myself God does all things well, even when he created me. After all, my husband and children would have had a very dull existence had they not had to put up with me!

I hope they believe God does all things well!!

Thanking God for . . . for . . . for . . . now what was I going to say? Gloria
