Just the usual. Get up, shower, cup of coffee, feed kids, get them to school, home, more coffee, plan the day, washing, washing up and all the other bland stuff.
I took the time today to make myself a cappuccino (since we have a great machine that does all that stuff) and really sat down and enjoyed my coffee once I had arrived home from the school run.
I sat there planning my day, thinking about all the things I wanted to achieve and then wrote the list of the things I thought I would realistically get done.
One of the things I had planned was to write this post and as I scanned the old grey matter for a thought or memory that might jog a feeling of gratitude, it hit me like a Tsunami!
Yes, I know you all know what a Tsunami is, that is not what I am saying about water.
What I am saying, is that I am grateful for water!
I live in a land girt by sea!
I can use water for recreational purposes!
I can wash my dishes, my clothes, my kids and myself in water that is fit to drink!
It certainly is a privilege I often forget is a blessing. I know I take our water for granted most of the time.
That, is why, today, I am grateful for water.
My Happy Ending would be that all communities were equally as blessed as I am, to have water on tap.
We never know the worth of water till the well is dry. ~Thomas Fuller, Gnomologia, 1732
