I am a very grateful person. The fact that almost everyone has modern plumbing and hot running water is something that I am in awe of. I grew up in a somewhat rural town, but I always have had hot water and indoor plumbing. I do remember our pipes freezing sometimes and not having water for several days and having to go to someone's house to take a bath. That, in itself, will make you realize what you have. I had friends that lived in the "country" that still used an out door facility, but we never did.
I have never been hungry and I have never been seriously ill. Why, I've never even had a broken bone. I had my appendix taken out and my tonsils removed, but other than that I'm healthy.
I am so thankful and so grateful for all the blessings that I have. If I am cold, I turn up the heat. If I am hungry, I go to a fully stocked kitchen. I love to cook and do so everyday...indoors with an electric range.
I just wanted to make a quick post, to remind us of everything we might take for granted. I thank God for the air that I breathe and the fact that I can breathe easily, on my own.
I have a wonderful husband who loves me very much, as I do him. Life is brief. I have many loved ones that are now gone, but I think of them so often. Take every opportunity to tell people that you love them, and if that is difficult for you...do something for them. Go to the store for someone, go pump their gas, do whatever you think might make even a small difference.
Let your light shine. It's the least we can do.
Thanks for listening.
