Yesterday, the ladies of our church had lunch together and it was delightful! I am thankful for each one of these precious sisters in Christ. The reason for our gathering was less delightful, however. One of our number (and we are a very small church) is leaving us to move to North Carolina with her husband. She will be sorely missed but I am thankful for the time she and her husband have been with us.
Yesterday, the temperature here in Crystal Lake, IL got up to 101 degrees. I may sound like a broken record (now isn't that revealing my age category) but I am very grateful for our working air conditioning.
Finally, I am still fighting shingles and am on a pain medication that makes me sleepy and less efficient than normal...not that I am always on top of everything, mind you. But I am especially thankful for the patience and loving kindness of my family at this time.
