Oh the joy of an air conditioning vent putting forth cool air!
When I saw this the other day...
"Well... I must face the truth. We really ARE rednecks."
If my children are this easily entertained by the virtues of modern convenience, life should be interesting for the next few months ahead immersed back into the city life.
Already I take the dishwasher for granted, but the air conditioning? No.
Today when I woke up it wasn't putting out that nice cool air.
I must have pushed every button and combination of buttons there are on the thermostat thingy, and to no avail. I watched the temp climb all day and I felt great pity for my pregnant self that here I am in civilization in a beautiful 5000 square foot house with an A/C unit that wont work!
Really, I did cry. it was very sad. I went into the bathroom, shut the door (the real reason for locks on bathroom doors - for the escape of desperate mommas), sat on the step stool by the sink and had a good cry.
Have you ever tried to have a good cry while explaining to God WHY you are justified in feeling so sorry for yourself?
I couldn't do that today.
I knew that any reason I could think of for deserving a cry was seriously lacking.
You know what though?
My dear Father is one who lets me climb up on His lap, lean my head against His heart, and cry.
Cry good and cry long without a reason; without justification; without needing to give me a pep talk.
He is so good to me.
I didn't try to have a reason today. He let me cry and that's all I needed.
He let me dry my eyes, and He let me carry on with my day in the knowledge that sometimes nothing needs to be said between us. He understands it all.
Can you tell that I'm gaining on the end of my pregnancy?
This is all part of the package - this crying for no reason business;-)
FYI, Uncle Wyatt was my hero tonight when he got home and found the problem with the A/C .
In short order I was blissfully standing over the vent myself!
Thanks so very much!
