Gratitude Post #2
Today I am grateful for running water. I'm grateful that I can go to the tap and turn it on and out comes Phoenix water. I would be a little bit more grateful if it was Seattle water, but then I would have to suffer through the rain. Sometimes in the summer it comes out too hot to touch, but still, it is "safe" to drink and I don't have to walk anywhere to get it. I need to flush the toilet, BAM, it's done. (And that is usually after I notice that someone "forgot" to flush the toilet. Someone's still nervous that the flush will suck them into the pipes). If I think my kids are dirty, turn on the faucet and they get all fresh and clean. If I HAVE to do the laundry (Please people, can't you be nudists), I can start the washer whenever I feel like it. I can water my lawn, I can water the chickens, I can fill the pool with water. I don't take this for granted. I am very fortunate to be here and have water. I love water.
