Well I will say that other than the reunion get together at Crystal Cove, July has been the most trying month for me, within this past year.  I know that it will be getting better, but still I struggle not to worry and to keep a positive outlook. (Yes Greg, I am human).

So today driving home from work in the 100+ degree weather, I was grateful that the air conditioner works well in my car that has over 283,000 miles on it; and I was extremely grateful to have a beautiful swimming pool that I was able to jump into when I arrived at my house.  It felt great!  I didn’t go jogging with my two little dogs this morning, so I swam some laps this evening.

I am grateful for my opportunities and lessons and I pray that I take advantage of the opportunities and that I learn my lessons well.
