I had it all plan on what I was going to write about tonight, complain about something with no value but then I read my best friend's blog and realize how trivial my problems are. You see, Cassie, she lost her 20 year old son about 3 weeks ago, found him dead in their pool and as I watch her take charge in making atrrangements, thanking everyone, speaking at Nathan's memorial I can only watch in amazement of how she kept herself so strong and together. This was a woman who was not sure what she wanted to do with her profession, how to juggle her home, family and money but there she was "In Charge". She has made me see her in a different light and I would forever remember her strength. Now I see her after all is over, a mother, in pain and heart broken over the lost of her child. She cries, there is a void but she knows he will never return. What do I say, what do I do. I know she has faith, I saw it, I know she has hope, she spoke it. It is so hard when you are trying to find the right words, I guess all I can do is pray and be there for her.... what little comfort.

This is my 3rd night without a/c. We are still waiting for "the man" to come and fix it but until then eating ice and cold showers will have to do. I really can't remember when it was so hot and I was so uncomfortable which goes to show that we take the daily things in our lives for granted. I know there is a life lesson in this and maybe it is to appreciate the small things in life and having a friend who knows how to fix an aircondition!!!!

Today as I sat and watch the twelve 3 year olds play, I realized that even they have their own little world. The "clicks" have already formed, the divas who must have their way or else they are not playing, crying when their dresses are dirty and of cause must have their shades at all times. Then there are the thugs who bully the gym and the sleeping cots, there are the jocks that can complete any tasks given as long as it is physical and of cause the quiet, smart ones who sometimes are never notice. It is amazing that they start so young. There are fights, trades, negotiations, underhanding....worst than Wall St. but once you get them all covered in their Barney, Sponge Bob blankets and are all are asleep, how innocent are their faces, after all they are angels.

We had rain AGAIN. That's not too bad but when you have twelve 3 yr olds have to walk in the biggest puddles of water and complete their jumping jacks before moving on....WHY?. Have you ever had a day when you just wanted to get home and even though you drive the same direction every day, today just felt as if I would never reach. Maybe tomorrow will be better
