I was going to write about something else, but guess whose electricity went out?
On a bright, sunny day, no less, but that seems to be the way of it out here in the country. I generally take it in stride, but today, I was in the middle of so many things, all of which require electricity, so it was a little more troublesome than usual. For those of us with wells, losing power means losing water, so perhaps this would be a good time to express my thanks, too, for the clear, cold, fresh water that normally flows so freely through my pipes.
We take so much for granted in this country. So I think it’s good for us to be inconvenienced sometimes, to be startled out of complacency. I was. And even if I felt a little cranky, it did make me more aware of how blessed I am, so it was a good thing. And I think I can say that I’m grateful for it, too.
