We are so blessed! And thanks for hot water.
Just a little bit ago, my son came in to say goodnight and his hands were freezing. He said it was from washing the dishes. Well, my husband went out to the van for something and saw that the neighbor boys were washing their dishes as well - outside at night with cold water!! We live in Mexico and there is poverty all around. Our next door neighbors live in a plywood shack with no running water indoors, just a hose outside. They don't have ANY hot water, so that must have been a pretty tough chore. But that is not unusual here. Needless to say, my son was counting some of his blessings tonight rather than complaining about his chores. He got to use hot water and wash the dishes in a sink inside the house. Just a reminder to be thankful continually for all the blessings God bestows upon us daily!
