for running water and other things
This morning I did a million loads of laundry with just the touch of a button in my super slick automatic washing machine. I probably washed my hands a thousand times at the sink that is conveniently located right in my kitchen. I flushed toilets and ran the dishwasher. I turned on a hose and water came rushing out and onto my plants. I knew we were having a plumber this afternoon to fix the sump pump in our basement, so I tried to get all of the things that required water out of the way in case he needed to turn it off (he didn't). I spent my day using or thinking about using water and feeling very grateful to have such an unlimited and easy access to it. Today is about being grateful for modern conveniences - things I normally take for granted that many people in this world live without. It's sort of staggering when I stop to think about it. Man, oh man, am I grateful!
