Society is more and more sophisticated, and I take more and more for granted. But when I look around my house, I see:
A cabinet full of dishes, so I don’t have to wash the same set over and over.
A dishwasher that makes it so all I have to do is rinse the many dishes I have.
A pantry full of food. So much food that it goes bad before I eat it.
A microwave so I can reheat a meal in seconds.
A stove and oven so I don’t need to start cooking one meal as soon as I clean up from the last.
A machine that just boils water so I don’t have to stand over a fire to make a cup of tea.
Lights that turn on when I flip a switch so I don’t have to carry a lantern around or go to bed at sundown.
A heater so I don’t have to risk burning my house down to stay warm at night.
An air conditioner so I am not sweltering in the Georgia heat from April until October.
A TV that has many channels that I can watch any time I want.
A washing machine that makes it so I don’t have to scrub my clothes.
A dryer so I don’t have to hang my clothes to dry all day.
Enough clothes that I can go a long time without having to wear the same ones.
A car of my own so I don’t have to walk miles to get groceries, uphill both ways.
A bed so my aging back doesn’t have to get sore from sleeping on the floor.
A phone that helps me look up useless information or send people messages that they receive immediately.
Many books, including the Bible, to keep my brain engaged.
Music to lift my spirits.
Thoughts that I can change on my own.
I am a blessed girl. How are you blessed?
