“If you think you have nothing to be grateful for, here’s two things alone you can count as major blessings every day…
Every week your garbage is collected. Every time you turn on the tap you have water.
Not snazzy enough? Take a minute…
If you couldn’t conveniently dump your trash out front in a convenient, allocated trash can that is picked up and emptied miraculously each week. What would you do with it?
Where would you put it? How often would you have to go to the tip? Would the tip exist? Would you have to pay? Would your neighbours be just as pro-active in ridding themselves of their trash or would it grow and encompass their yard, your yard, the street?
If you had no running water at the flick of a faucet… how would you deal with your thirst, wash clothes, cook, bathe, flush the toilet, clean? Where would you get your daily water? Would it be hygienic? Clear? Safe? Free?
Taking things for granted is not okay, it robs us of knowing how blessed and rich we are, every day.
People this very moment are dying without these two precious things.
We have so much to be grateful for, so very much. ~ Lynika Cruz
