Today, I am thankful for the simple things in life. Rather, the things that make life simple!
Dishwasher...I vaguely remember life without a dishwasher. I really think that I was too young though to really appreciate the value of it. Not so much anymore. I am so thankful for our Dishwasher. It may be an older model and may be a little noisier than I would like, but I am so thankful for it. It is a magical thing how I put my dishes in dirty & they come out clean. Thank you Lord & I seriously mean, THANK YOU LORD!
Washer & Dryer. Hallelujah! I can throw in a load of clothes and do other things. I can forget about a load of towels for a week in the dryer, press the touch up on the dryer & have them come our like new. LOL. (shhhhh....don't tell anyone that I do that!) I know, you can admit that you sometimes do that too! Seriously, I am really thankful for an automatic washer & dryer. I do hang some of my clothes to dry, but goodness gracious, I am so glad I don't have to hang them all. I am also thankful I don't have to individually scrub my clothes. Goodness....Laundry....Love it!
Microwave. I remember our first microwave when I was a kid. It was HUGE! Oh goodness, we used it a lot. Of course, we had to teach my dad how to use it, but wow, it sure made a difference. Especially when it comes to heating soup or veggies. How about microwave popcorn?! Goodness, what a great thing. Now a days, the microwave best serves me when I need to make my son some hot dogs, chicken nuggets or simply re-heat some food. I am thankful for this invention.
One more I will mention tonight...Keurig machine. Okay, okay...so maybe this isn't something to make my life easier, but honestly, I am thankful for it. One cup of coffee at a time. Hot & fresh every time....YUM. Making life simple....YES! Making life enjoyable?! YES!!! Thank you Lord for this!!!!
So many more "simple" things I'm thankful for, but maybe for another day.
