This morning when our family awoke we realized that we did not have running water throughout the entire house! I still, at this moment, do not have running water in my house... let me tell you what we all do with running water that we take for granted every day - showering, washing your face, brushing your teeth, doing your hair, washing dishes, watering plants, washing your hands, washing your food, cooking your food, flushing the toilet (yes, today I have learned to pour pitchers of our bought and purchased drinking water down the toilet), washing clothes as well as any and all cleaning, mopping, etc.
So, tonight, while you are all sitting around wonderful meals (that you cooked with the assistance of running water) and thinking of all that you are grateful for - please know two things - we love you all tremendously and running water NEEDS to be on the list of things you are grateful for!
Happy Thanksgiving to each of you!
