Well, it's mid-week and it looks like our extreme heat has come and gone for now. It was pretty brutal outside Monday and yesterday, but the temperature has fallen and the rain chances have increased. I'm very thankful for air conditioning and being able to stay mostly indoors and cool. The downside, however, is that my social self has gotten very lonely and I'm reminded at every turn that this is not life as I knew it. I haven't reached the depths of despair that Anne of Green Gables was so apt to fall into, but I suspect I'm not far from it. The good news for Kit is that I've had plenty of time to focus on her. We've played a few games of "catch the light" and I've joined her once or twice as she's napped, but I stay on the furniture when she decides to sleep behind it.
I've made myself go walk in the mornings and that always helps me refocus on God and the amazing world He has made which then reminds me how much He cares about me too. I suppose in the deepest part of my heart, I really am OK, but I do miss family and friends and life. I guess as everybody heads back to school, I'll keep plugging away at the life lessons I know God is teaching me. I just wish there was a shortcut sometimes.
