It Happens to all of Us Sooner or Later!

Patty and I got up early this morning and drove up to Trout Lake, Washington, to visit my Mom. When we got to Hood River, Patty who was driving, took the exit and went to Safeway because she wanted to get some special things for lunch for Mom. I stayed in the car reading as she went into the store to shop. She returned in 15 minutes, put everything in the car, pushed the cart into the stall where they were kept, hopped into the car, and off we went. When we drove into Mom’s driveway she asked if I would carry the cooler in and she would get the groceries she had bought. I dutifully did as I was asked, and as I was giving Mom a hug Patty began looking for her purse in the grocery bags, then she went out to the car to look, and then she came in and looked in the bags again, and then back to the car to look more carefully. When she came back in the house she said, “I did a dumb thing, I think I left my purse in the grocery cart”! She called Safeway, and they said no one had turned it in, and they sent someone out to look for it, but no purse! Oh great! But wait, what is that commitment I make every morning to the Lord, “Today, I will not get angry at anybody, not even a little bit irritated, no matter what they do”. MMM, I guess that is now๐Ÿ˜ง! I called our bank, and they cancelled our account and said to come in tomorrow and we would open a new one. I called our gas credit card, and did the same. I was glad that she didn’t have any other credit cards. Well, that wasn’t that hard, and no damage was done. On our drive home Patty reached down to slide her seat forward, and felt her purse and pulled it out, and held it up with a look that said, whoops, I did another dumb thing! Let’s see, what is that commitment again, oh Yeh, I will not get angry, upset, not even a little, tiny bit irritated. I called everybody back, and said “false alarm” don’t cancel the accounts. No problem, they all said, glad you found it. Patty said, “I am so sorry” ๐Ÿ˜ฉ I said, “It is all good, I get a something to write about in my blog!” ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚
