Currie's Gratitude 1 November 2014

I smiled back at her. I thought such awful thoughts that I cannot even say them out loud because they would make Jesus want to drink gin straight out of the cat dish.    [Anne Lamott, Traveling Mercies: Some Thoughts on Faith]

I’ve been feeling something like this for some time Now. I hesitated long BEfore selecting this quote to bounce off of this morning. I have had some really awful thoughts. Some of them I canNOT even think about thinking about. They are that awful.

I wonder a lot about the power of my thoughts. I sincerely and deeply BElieve our thoughts BEcome the “things” of our lives. Mine surely have carved out an interesting existence. When Gracie and I are out in the mornings, I spend a lot of time watching thought bubbles in my birdbrain.

Yesterday I tried this tamarindo [I think the name is something like that] juice at the Farmer’s Market. I gave the guy a $10 and he gave me back $17. I knew it when I got home BEcause I knew exactly how much I had had in my wallet.

I no more thought about keeping it than I would think to intentionally hurt someone. Still, it will BE on my mind until next Friday, when I can return it to him.

I love you, Currie

Me thinks that some planets out there are totally out of alignment or under attack from some solar flare or just out and out suffering from total hormonal unbalance. Negative thoughts are running rampant here in this house and I'm struggling to get things under control. So unlike me and it's scary... I know this will pass...but not soon enough for me. Sending you hugs and love. We'll hold hands and sing til this phase is over ♥
