Watch for developments.

For all the many things I’m grateful for today one of the things high on my list is gratitude to Whoever fixed the squealing dryer used by my fellow tenant in this house, however it happened. I haven’t heard those horrific sounds (hour after hour, week after week) for over 12 days. No unpleasant ringing in my ears, no ear ache, no annoyance escalating to anger. Healing has begun….
