Gratitude and Appreciation

my journey into being thankful for what i have

Hot Water Heaters

on June 5, 2013

The poor things in life that are mundane, or semi-boring… they never get the attention they deserve, do they?  We’re much more likely to be upset when things don’t work than be excited when they do work – but I am personally grateful for the opportunity to recognize how important things like hot water heaters are.  Yesterday, we woke up to no hot water in the house – at all.  We started a basement bathroom remodel project on Monday, so I was pretty sure it related to that in some way, but my hubby and I both had to take freezing cold showers.  I sent the contractor a text (at 6am), told him the hot water was out, and asked if I might need to check something in the basement – he wrote back that he was so sorry, he flipped the breaker before tearing stuff out of the bathroom, and must not have flipped it back.  Hooray for an easy fix!  But – after taking a shower that was definitely a little more than just “brisk”, I now have a whole new level of appreciation for how important hot water heaters are.  Hooray for the joy of having one, and the beauty of a hot shower this morning!  =-)
