For a few years I had it bad, plus by bad I mean really, genuinely bad. I was homeless for a time, plus that was when I was still living in my car. Once our vehicle was impounded, things got even worse plus I drifted for a short while. I went from town to town, meal to meal, just trying to keep myself alive long enough for things to turn themselves around. I discovered a church program that found me a task plus got me a location to reside. I have easily learned a lot about myself since then… Just the other year, my little box air conditioning device in the front window broke down, plus I got a little angry about it. I had to stop plus laugh, because multiple years ago I would have counted myself lucky to be able to sleep in an air conditioning box for the evening. The newer A/C devices plus oil furnaces comes in super thick, sturdy boxes that can stand a few days worth of weather. Just a few months later plus I have a roof over my head, I have a tv plus a bathroom, plus I am grumbling about an air conditioning device on the fritz! Instead of complaining about it, I prayed my thanks that a broken A/C device was suddenly the worst problem in my blessed life. I took the thing apart plus tried to get it toiling again myself, figuring that studying how to jury rig a single one of these air conditioning devices might be a smart thing to learn how to do.
