I find it interesting that I can be lulled into a familiar routine so easily.
It seems as though I can simply go for days without honestly paying attention to what is happening. Talk about someone who needs to live for the moment more! But, just like everyone, I do get so caught up with the fast pace of life plus all that is expected of me. I do my very best. But then a bit of a wake up call can honestly add some perspective for me! Our Heating and A/C failing a few weeks ago did the trick for me. The middle of the summer is not when you want the Heating or the A/C to go out on you! However, I came home to our condo one evening and then when I opened the door, the condo was as boiling hot inside as it was outside. I could tell instantly that the A/C had not been running for most of the day. I serviced the power. Then I checked out all the other things that I knew of. But there just wasn’t anything that was out of the ordinary. It was just the Heating and A/C was off. It was after hours and so I decided to call the Heating and A/C people in the afternoon. Then that was a very hot night. However, it was about to get even warmer. The Heating as well as A/C technician came out to our place the next day. After a very short inspection, he said that he could repair the Heating and A/C for us. But, it would be a few days before he could get a specialized part for us. When I broke the news to our family, they wanted to go stay inside a hotel. That stunned me quite a bit. We couldn’t even stay without A/C for a few days. We are so spoiled.
