Forgetting and running around…
Yesterday was a day filled with forgetting and running around. First, I forgot to make the promised cake for the Cub Scouts to decorate. Actually I remembered the cake, but I got my dates mixed up. So I ran home and baked it. I was able to use the baking time to finish the birthday gift I was making so that was helpful.
Then I went to teach Kindermusik and remembered I had not made the icing for the cake. So once I finished music I dashed into the church kitchen and made the icing.
Later I remembered I had promised to loan my icing spatulas so I ran home (not literally), got the spatulas and delivered them on my way to the hospital.
Whew! I was glad to sit down and knit while I visited my friend at the hospital.
Eventually I got home and made dinner, finished knitting the hat.
I was glad to go to bed. It was a long and crazy day, all due to my forgetting. I didn’t write it down and that is the key for me so going forward I plan to do just that. Since I make a mind map every morning I can easily add these chores to it. Hopefully, no more forgetting!!
Father, thank you for getting me through the day. Help me to remember my promises. Amen.
