Hunkering Down

A little over 3 years ago (July 21, 2004, but who's keeping track?) a colleague from work offered to install an air conditioner for me.

The weather had been brutally hot, and this kind soul took pity on me.

We'd worked together for 9 years, but I barely knew his name.

He didn't talk much.

When he left after the job was done, he gave me his card.

We were married 10 months later.

Today, 3 years later, we are thankful for that act of kindness as we hunker down in the exquisite coolness of what used to be my studio but is now our bedroom.

While our neighborhood melts under the stifling heat, we thank God for that air conditioner...

...and for each other.
