Taken for Granted

Most modern American families have washing machines, dishwashers, microwaves, blenders, refrigerators, cars, and many more such modern conveniences. We often forget to appreciate these inventions that do the job for us, giving us more time to spend with family, work and play. Just think if you had to walk or take a horse everywhere you needed to go? Or if you had to wash your clothes by hand? What are taken for granted even more are inventions such as electricity, clean running water, electric or gas stoves to cook our food, a bathtub or shower, and flush toilets. There are many in our world who live without such blessings.

After 6 years of daily using an outhouse, we now have indoor plumbing! What a luxury to have, especially on cold winter nights! Think about the everyday modern conveniences you take for granted, and take a moment to be thankful for what you have!
