Today, as I was taking my twice weekly shower (a big pull-back from my daily shower) I realized how good the hot water felt, and how good it felt to be able to take a hot shower and get clean. I remember in those hurried days of daily showers how unappreciative I was of water and heat. How I took it all for granted. Today I was able to experience the shower, appreciate it and thank God and the universe for the opportunity to shower when I wanted and without rationing.
This morning as I grabbed my cup and poured my coffee I realized how lucky I am that I had the coffee grounds and water to make the coffee, and that I had eggs and potatoes to make breakfast. There are so many people in this world who have nothing.
Today is my day of appreciation. Today I will try and be extra mindful of all the blessings and gifts of my life.
