Taken for Granted...

 "You don't know what you've got til it's gone"  Joni Mitchell.
This week I have become keenly aware of certain things that I am blessed with.
Things that I have a new appreciation for, since having to exist without them.

talking (always helpful with a 3 year old or with 250 twelve year olds)
teaching (this is where talking is always helpful)
running (yes, even at 5am)
sleeping (coughing does not help)
hot water (shower, dishwasher, laundry)
nice weather (3 days with it makes putting up with 4 inches of snow hard to do)
a drive-able car (mine is not because of a 6 car pile-up on the freeway)
safety (we are all ok... our car is not)
just a nice normal, regular day as a healthy person

Well, I was hoping to see a photo of the pile up. Just when you were getting better, too. Hope it didn't set you back at all.

YOu're so right. Some things we just take way too much for granted. Too bad it takes going without them sometimes to realize just what we've got. You take care.

SO glad you guys are alright! Pain in the rear about your car, but you definitely have the right attitude about it. We do take so many things for granted this day in age. We are so blessed. Thanks for the reminder!
