I have turned the corner. Everything that I wanted to do or accomplish this summer has either been done, or I no longer care if it gets done. It is just too. stinking. hot. I could easily (and rather happily) become a hermit at this point. I am through with summer.
The only problem is...summer isn't over yet. So I suppose I'll just have to steel myself to turn that corner back again. Sigh.
Strange Walmart story from today. (Do you have strange Walmart stories? Does everyone?) As I walked down the frozen food section, an employee was in the aisle and said to me, "Be careful, ma'am! There's an electrical problem there."
As I heard him warn everyone who turned into the aisle (I even heard something about "catching on fire"), I decided that I did not need any frozen foods, thank you very much. I mean, are frozen peas worth risking electrocution? Is ice cream, even?!
Our travelers are making their way eastward. Last night, Salt Lake City; tonight, Cheyenne. I am so very grateful to those of you who have been praying for them. Your words of kindness and encouragement mean the world.
When I read this quote recently, it impacted me. It's a perfect picture of acceptance. Can I make that statement? Honestly?
(And what if God sends heat and humidity?)
