It’s gotten so that I have had to change our whole waking up routine these mornings.
There is so much animosity & negativity in our country that I can’t even read the news. Used to be that I would get up & watch the news on TV. That got so exhausting that I had to start only studying the news. Now I can’t even sit in the a/c of our house & read the news. It seems care about the people I was with and I all just are getting more & more divided with every passing afternoon. I hate that because I appreciate to feel kinship with our countrymen whether the people I was with and I agree over politics or not. But thankfully, a recent HVAC device upgradement situation soothed our soul a bit. I live in a relatively small town. And our local community sort of looks in on each other. There is a buddy down the road who is older & alone. She is living on a actually fixed income & has no margin for error. It became obvious to myself and others & some other neighbors that her a/c was not running. Where the people I was with and I live, that can just be dangerous as the heat is the major weather conditions challenge around here. So the people I was with and I got together with a local HVAC provider to see what the people I was with and I could do to help this lady. We didn’t want to embarrass her so the people I was with and I got our ducks in a row first. The neighbors collected enough money to upgrade her outdated HVAC equipment. The HVAC company the people I was with and I worked with said they would donate the work for the installation. When the people I was with and I told her, she was so moved as were the rest of us. Just goes to show that there is more that unites us than divides us.
