Here's something else we so often take for granted - instant hot water! Just imagine a life with no hot tea or coffee! And during these colder days, just think about not having a hot water heater. Ice shower, anyone?
Think about washing clothes or even dishes. Do you remember grandmother's kitchen, and watching her fill up the sink with hot water from the kettle, so that she could wash the dishes? It's amazing just how much easier our lives have become from previous generations. We don't have to build a fire to warm the water, or even keep the fire going all day in the wood stove. We just turn on a tap and wait a few moments. Or if we're in the kitchen, we can just zap the water in the microwave for 30 seconds. It's really something. Just another small thing, that makes a huge difference, for which to Give Thanks.
