Making History, Ha!
Yesterday it was 114 degrees... yup. I feel that when the temperature is that extreme, I get really consumed with it, and not necessarily in a bad way. I found myself checking the thermometer constantly to see how hot the earth could get without actually blowing up. I told a friend at the end of the day, "I don't believe in global warming, but if somebody did, they should have done a big ole' campaign here today!"
The weather reminds me of a recent trip to the dessert with my friend, Nany. We had a fun photo shoot (complete with blinding lighting techniques, as you can see in my strained smile) out in the hot, hot hills of Nevada.
I wish I could draw some amazing analogy from the hot weather to where I am in life, but that's just not what I'm capable of this morning. I will leave you with this, though: since yesterday was a record high for our area, I didn't bother me so much that we were crazy uncomfortable whenever we stepped foot outside, 'cause we were making history! Could I start viewing personal struggles that way? What do you think?
