This week while dealing with annoying and painful issues I started thinking about what I have to be thankful for instead of dwelling on the negatives of each of these situations. It has brought me a little more peace to deal with the loss of both our a/c and of our beloved Ollie. I will do a main post of Ollie later. But here are my thoughts.
No A/C- This week our a/c has quit working once again. This is going to be the 6th time an a/c tech. has been to our house since May. While dealing with this I started thinking about how lucky I really am to have a nice home, food to eat, clothes to wear and a cozy bed to sleep in and also be able to afford a/c. I often take these comforts for granted. It could be a whole lot worse and for many people it is. So as I wait for the tech to return my call I am trying to remember that politness will recieve a better outcome. So as we cirrculate the air in our house with fans to stay cooler I will remember to be thankful. Oh, and it is suppose to be near 100 degrees today.
Ollie our cat is gone- Ollie went missing last week. We looked for him that first night but weren't really worried about him as he likes to hang out with the neighbors. The next day when he didn't come home we started asking around to see if anyone had seen him. No one has. While hope and praying for him to come home I am also being thankful that we were able to enjoy such a wonderful loving cat. Our hope is that he is safe wherever he is and that someone will see our signs and call us.
Have a great week!
