We’re up and …


The plumbers came out very quickly this morning.  They had to pump out water and use hand shovels to dig the dirt mud out of their way to fix the pipes.

We are very thankful to have our running water back :)  The toilets were very busy this morning.  It was getting rough in a very short period of time.  We actually started getting buckets of water from the neighbors house in order to flush the toilets. 

I haven’t taken a shower and I’m not sure if I’m going to be able to get one until tonight.  Doesn’t work well to leave the children unattended…something usually gets broken or messed up :)  That’s ok…I will give thanks for the running water.  I’m sure I’m not the first mom to go without a shower for a day!

It’s the little things like water that we take for granted on a daily basis.  Sometimes it’s good to be without to reflect upon the many blessings that we so often stop to give thanks for each day.

What are you thankful for today?
