Giving Thanks

by Melissa

As I stood in the very hot shower this morning letting the water run for an excessive amount of time, I suddenly had a thought.

“Man I had better enjoy these hot showers now because who knows what I am going to be getting when I travel.”

Which led to -

“What exactly will I be missing as I travel – what are the things I take for granted?”

As we head into the Thanksgiving week here are the things that I am thankful for and take for granted everyday.  They are in no particular order.

Creature Comforts

  • Hot showers.
  • Drinkable tap water.
  • Uncontaminated fruits and veggies, for the most part.
  • A washer and dryer of my own.
  • My favorite laundry detergent and dryer sheets.
  • Toilets that flush, soft, two-ply toilet paper and being allowed to flush said paper. Trust me I have already experienced toilet paperless toilets and I have had my share of pooping behind trees.
  • Grocery stores just around the corner and full of everything I could possibly need to make a quick dinner.
  • Target.  ’Nuff said.
  • Television – even without the cable.
  • Electricity that works every time I flip the switch.
  • Blow dryer.
  • My favorite lotions and body wash.
  • Electric toothbrush.
  • Working out to Insanity.
  • Eyebrow waxes and hairdresser.
  • My bed with fresh clean sheets and no bed bugs.
  • Car that is always at my disposal to take me wherever I need to go.
  • My house.  A place where I can be myself in all things.  A place to chill and just hang with my family with all of the familar things around us.

Friends and Family

Being able to see my friends and family whenever I wish.

My Career

While I will be leaving my job, I still like my job.  It’s fun and challenging with everyday being different.
