Yes, I am a fair weather fan...I complain when it's too cold! I complain when it's too hot!
This thermometer hangs outside our shop door...
We saw record breaking temps like this for at least four days this past week. And this is what Jim and Eric and my nephew were doing on Saturday morning...
I will admit...I was feeling pretty sorry for us; having to work outside in the miserable humidity when others could be inside in the air conditioning, staying cool and comfortable.
And then I read the status of one of my facebook friends...
"What if we woke up, with only that for which we were thankful for yesterday?"
Was I thankful for the electricity that runs the fans that keep the cows cool?
Was I thankful for the way the cows hung in there in the heat?
Was I thankful for the shower I could take when I was finished working...and the air-conditioned bedroom that I could hibernate to for a while?
Was I thankful for those loads of beautiful hay that Jim baled?
Was I thankful that our kids were happy to have cousins visiting?
Was I thankful that we are healthy and well fed?
And the list goes on...
Do I enjoy being hot and sticky and smelly and dirty any more than I did before I read that? NO!
But was I reminded to be thankful for the blessings that we have in the midst of all that? YES!
