Lately, everywhere I’ve went, people are complaining about the weather… politics… health or family issues… jobs… whether they have one — or want one. For me, and my family, the biggest problem is the heat — and humidity.
We do our best when the temperature is below 70… like so many of you. But I try not to complain — at least, I try to stop when I catch myself complaining. My complaints have no effect whatsoever on the temperature. But they have a lot of effect on my family!
So, whenever I find myself complaining, I distract myself. I think about author events and workshops and conferences scheduled during the next few weeks. I focus on them, and the friends I’ll get to see again, and the wealth of knowledge I’ll come away with.
And I remind myself that soon the days will grow shorter, the temperatures will begin dropping, the long walks will be more enjoyable, and the nights of warm cocoa and fuzzy socks!
My fuzzy socks are a blessing to me… a dear, sweet friend began blessing me last winter with soft, fuzzy socks in assorted colors. I can’t wait for cool nights, so I can begin wearing them again.
Do you have a favorite treat to look forward to when the season changes? I’d love to hear from my wonderful readers — if you’d care to share your thoughts…
In the meantime, take care — and God bless!
