There’s a reason for everything . . . .

 

 

Yes, this is me when I was a little girl.

Every once in a while something happens that takes me back to when I was that little girl. Lessons we learned then are etched in our little minds. and will be there forever.

I’ve done some stupid things lately.  Like this morning a friend was coming to pick me up to take me to the bus station so the bus could take me to the airport. I was up early, bathed and packed, when I looked at the notes by my telephone and discovered I had given her the time the bus would leave in Omaha next week to take me home.

Or the day that i spent an hour looking for my earrings . . . and they were in my ears.

Or the day, you will remember, that I turned on my fireplace when the air conditioning was running.

And yet this sort of thing can be explained.

I was a good girl. I learned my lessons and I remembered them.

So this morning I thought about some of my recent silly mistakes and I found my answer. I know exactly how they happen and why. It all stems back to my mother and her advice that often started with the words “If I’ve told you once . . . ”

And then she gave me this rule that I still follow, to this day:

 ACT YOUR AGE

    Always a lesson in all our actions isn’t there! And maybe the lesson is also, be present in the moment, it’s the only one we have ❤
