Month of Gratitude
Day One

Miraculous Modern Conveniences

On Halloween of this year, the girls and their friends took practically every blanket in our house outside to lie on, cover up with, and “look at the stars”. This was followed by an impromptu sleepover where yet more blankets were used and clothing was loaned. So the next day, on November 1st, I began washing and drying the first of many loads of laundry, cleaning much wayward dead grass out of the lint trap as I went! And that is why, for the first day of November, it seemed appropriate to be grateful for the modern conveniences of a washing machine and electric dryer. Sometimes the things we take for granted are the things we should be most grateful for.
