Blessings in the Heat...

I woke up this morning to the thumping of a happy tail on my bed, a boy whispering good morning, and sunlight in the window. Sauntering upstairs, I stop shocked as I hear M say, "Yeah... it's already 80 degrees."

In the kitchen Mom confirms the report- 92 for a high that will feel like 100.
It's May 24th. I'm not ready for this heat yet.
A few hours later, I glance at the clock on the wall.
I look out the window at the thermometer still tucked away in the shade, and gasp.
90 degrees.
In the shade.
At noon.
I shake my head.
Crazy weather.

But there are blessings to be found in the heat of... May? :)
