As I was standing in my shower today long after I was clean letting the warm water pour over me just because it felt good I realized what a blessing it is and something that I should be thankful for every day. There are millions of people in the world that don’t even have clean water to drink, and yet every day I not only have easy access to clean water to drink but to also bathe in not just for cleanliness but also because a nice warm shower or a nice long bath are pleasurable experiences. These are the things I take for granted too often while going about my daily life. Odds are if you’re reading this you too have access to indoor plumbing and clean water every day, so take a moment to appreciate what a luxury it is the next time you’re using it.
I’ve donated money to charity: water in the past, but it has been awhile. Thinking about this today made me decide it was time to make another donation. If you’re so inclined you might consider donating something to them as well.
