I woke up this Cramer Hill morning and I determined to have a good day in spite of all the terrible things happening in the world. I can’t do much or anything about most of them which makes me sad.
Now it’s one p.m. I’m home. It’s great to have a home. I pushed my sad thoughts to the back of my mind (a place where there are so many other thoughts that I’ll never find these particular thoughts again!) and reflected on some of today’s blessings.
- My a/c unit is humming away. I can sit at my desk in air-conditioned comfort. I love it. I remember too many summers of awful heat in North Camden and Cramer Hill. Yay for air-conditioning.
- My granddaughter fetched me a bottle of water when I visited her this morning. Fifteen months old! Grandmotherly pride! Grandbaby kisses and hugs! Who could ask for more?
- The customer service at TD Bank and the A Associates supermarket in Pennsauken proved to be extra pleasant and I made sure to thank those young women quite sincerely. Note to self: I should send a note to the bank and to the supermarket.
- Ancestry.com provided me with a long lost (actually formerly unknown) cousin and I received another informative and entertaining e-mail from her this morning.
- And, yes, I’m retired and not feeling desperate that summer vacation will end in five weeks or so. That’s the best feeling. Right up there with walking into an air-conditioned room!
Keep cool, dear readers.
Love from Cramer Hill,
Marguerite (Wunsch) Ferra
