Yours truly is going away with the kids for a few days. What you'll see in my absence will be re-runs. Comment moderation will be on. However, I may not be able to publish comments until my return. We'll see what happens.
The temperature at the ballpark just dropped 10 degrees this past hour ( from 100 to 90) so maybe some relief is in sight. I thought I was going to lose Rebecca at Mass this morning. I packed some frozen wash cloths in my handbag and we used them a few times to keep from fainting. The walk home was even worse. Thank God for cold lemonade. It revived us both. I saw this quote the other day and thought it really does ring true.
Ah, summer, what power you have to make us suffer and like it - (Russell Baker)
Hopefully, we don't squander the opportunity to offer it up. Funny, I rarely find anything in winter that makes me think so much of Purgatory as the heat and humidity of July do.
Have a blessed week!
