AAA and Church

Today was my first time attending the Buddhist Temple. Meditation began at 9, so I had to be at Maria’s by 8:30 at the latest. I was so proud of myself because I woke up on time and was walking out the door at 8:18 when I realized I was forgetting one thing –  my car keys. So I’m like okay that’s fine… It’s all good. I started to empty my bag, they were no where to be found. Looked all over my room – Still couldn’t find them. And they weren’t where we usually hang the car keys. This is when I started to get a little stressed out. In desperation I went out and looked to see if they happened to be in my car. I looked in and what do ya know, there they are sitting in the drivers seat. I threw my hands up in the air and said, “Oh that is just fan-fuckin-tastic!!!”. It was a really nice way to start my Sunday morning. My Uncle said I could take Aunt Cares car thank god. I hopped in that and off to church I went, flustered and late and not surprised at all. Sometimes I’m such a mess. Pretty typical.

Church was amazing though and I can’t wait to go again. They practice Jodo Shinshu Buddhism and it is so interesting. They teach you be awakened to the compassion of Amida Buddha and rejoicing in the assurance of Buddahood. They say, “We shall endeavor to live a life of gratitude and compassionate activity.” Everyone there is so kind. Being there opened my eyes… I am going to focus on living with more gratitude from now on. As much as I think I already do there is still so much room for improvement. So that is something I’ll be working on…

Anyway, I need to go keep my eye out for the AAA man. I love you dolls. Ciao
