It's been hot here and our air conditioner has been running steadily. I thank God for that every day. Our neighbors of over 15 years moved to Idaho and boy do we miss them! The new residents haven't moved in yet so it's strangely dark and quiet over there. School is going to start in a couple of weeks so our humble city will be jolted back to routine again. Stay away from the high school area at 3:15 as that's when school is dismissed and those kids come roaring out of the parking lots and tear down the streets!
"The unexpected courtesy, the thoughtful, kindly deed,
A hand reached out to help us when we find ourselves in need -
Oh, make us more aware, dear God, of little daily graces
That come to us with sweet surprise from never-dreamed-of places." -Helen Steiner Rice
