The brunette twin leaned over and said, "What are you doing? If we can't talk in church, then you can't write notes in church."
I smiled. She was right that we were always telling the girls not to talk in church. They get bored and start chatting. Every time we told them to be quiet, they started giggling.
They were not amused that I was writing notes on the church bulletin. For some reason I started writing notes a while ago. There was something about being relaxed in church that brought all kinds of reminders to the forefront. Rather than try to remember them after the service ended, I just started writing down notes to clear my mind.
In theory the brunette twin was right. I should not have been making notes in church. The reality was that those notes were the best way to clear my head. I do not know if I will stop writing notes, but I do know that I need to be more discrete from now on.
