Today I am thankful for electricity.
It’s something we don’t think about a lot until we don’t have it.
Due to Hurricane Sandy a lot of people in the East have been without power recently and it is a reminder how difficult it is to be without electricity.
Reading at night, regulating the temperature in your home, keeping foods refrigerated, enjoying a tv show, having an alarm wake you up, washing and drying clothes … we depend on electricity for so many things – it makes so much of life easier and more entertaining.
Today I am thankful for electricity!
Today I am thankful for my parents!
Both of my parents are deceased. My mother died in 1993 and my father died in 2001. I still miss them a lot and I think of them often.
I was fortunate to have two very wonderful parents! They weren’t perfect but they loved me well and I benefited greatly from their love.
They both left this world too soon imo. I would have loved to have spent many more days with them.
Thanks Mom and Dad! … for loving me unconditionally, for believing the best about me, for always being there for me, for teaching me how to persevere, for demonstrating to me how to be a good neighbor and friend, for being such good role models on how to be a healthy and loving family, and for showing me how to enjoy life.
