Loving the furnace these days

Journaling: Four generations of my family have lived in this house. Four generations have stood on this heater vent in the winter, enjoying the strong blast of hot air. Four generations of little girls have watched their nightgowns billow into bell-shaped containers of heat. Four generations of boys have stomped on the noisy metal grate as their hair blew skyward.

The recognition of the absolute joy in a moment like that is inspiring! To be able to sit back and see that the furnace has 4 generations all tied tightly together is quite a talent. Meg, you are an inspiration to me!
