Whilst driving down this country road today,
I saw this sign for a Laotian Buddhist Temple.
What? Way out in the middle of nowhere?
How can that be?
Indeed- it was there!
On the grounds there is a pond
Like an oasis in the middle of a desert.
The Monks were eating lunch.
So a different person took me around.
He and I took off our shoes, and went into the temple.
He knelt. I knelt.
He bowed. I bowed.
He asked if I wanted to take a picture.
He asked me! Now I know I am dreaming!
The whole day was incredible -
Although it didn't start off that way.
It started off with a test of my new-found confidence.
I guess it was restored!
Now I took the rest of the day, and finished my housework.
Which I once called "chores."
But now, it's like maintaining my weight loss, or anything else.
It's not a chore to keep up with blogs, or friends.
It's not a chore to manage my life!
Hope your day is going great!
