This week I came across a familiar statistic:  Only 1 in 9 people in the world have access to clean water.

Also this week I saw a blog post where a woman talked about how she was tired of feeling like her kitchen (and perhaps her whole house) was inadequate because it wasn’t like the friend/neighbor down the road who had a remodel recently.  Then she walked around and saw that she had running water when she turned on the tap, and it was clean and sanitary – she could drink straight out of the tap without treating or boiling.  And she realized her family was blessed.

So I am humbly being thankful for the water we have here, regardless of whether I perceive it to match the calendar.
