July in Texas is HOT. As I was coming back from lunch today in my “hot” car, I was sort of complaining to myself about the heat.
Those complaining thoughts can grab you quickly. I didn’t allow this “hot” complaint to linger. I remember living in our farm house in Oklahoma with a swamp cooler. I remember when we got the first “refrigerated air” window unit. I remember when I got my first house with central air conditioning. Now I have a house that has two air conditioning units. I am grateful.
There are those who might still have a swamp cooler, hang damp sheets on the open window and let the fan blow through, sleep on the patio or porch where there’s a little air flow. I remind myself often to be grateful and remember when.
Many nonprofits organizations and for profit businesses help those in need of an electric bill payment, a new fan, or maybe a ride to go deposit check in a bank so an electric bill can be paid. Remember those nonprofit organizations during these hot summer days. Donate to them if you can. Donate fans to re-sale shops or anyone having a fan drive.
Also please remember Texoma Gives Day on 9/7/17 and donate generously to nonprofits registered to participate on this 16 hour day of giving. 6am to 9pm www.texomagives.org
