Today, if you are looking for something to be grateful for and you have a flushing toilet, let that be enough.
That’s what Bertha whisper-shouted to me this morning after the plumber was here to unclog the sewer lines. And she’s right. How quickly all the trappings of my life give up their importance when my toilet doesn’t flush. And yet, it’s one of those things that rarely makes my gratitude list… unless it is right after a clog.
So, today I’ll take a few extra minutes to appreciate the privileges of living in a first world country… running water… flushing toilet… garbage pickup… just to name a few. Won’t you join me?
Bertha and I would love to hear your gratitudes in the comments.
