It’s raining again here. A nice, gentle kind of rain that makes you want to read a good book and not step foot out of the house…but I have many places to go and people to see. I swing my left foot out of the car door, of course, my foot lands in a puddle. Brown, silty residue swirls around my shoe, and I reflect, “This is what some people must drink.”
I finish my business at the salon and hop back into the car. Twisting the cap off of my second water bottle of the day, I am annoyed. “What a pain. The doctor said I should drink at least three of these a day.”
I come home to a toilet, overflowing…yuk! And I realize, thousands if not millions of people drink water contaminated with human feces.
…And I am humbled into gratitude.
