Grateful for Water

This year has been a hot summer! Heat waves, thirst and sweat are words used to describe the last few weeks. Thirst has been combated by a tall glass of cool, refreshing water; sweat has been slaked off by the rush of water coming from the shower head. Living in the city in a developed country, I am blessed to have the water that I need at the twist of a tap. There is no need for me to walk long distances to fetch the water I need and then carry it home. It is not necessary for me to boil the water before I drink it. This week I am grateful for water that is clean and easily accessible.

  1. I lived in the Philippines. When I was a kid, we had to collect water using pails and buckets and drums. I even remember pumping up and down wells just to get water. This is why I have learnt not to waste! Every drop, every grain, it’s something to be grateful for.


    1. The lessons we learn as a child definitely follow us through adulthood. I may not have had to pump for water like you did but having lived though many droughts, I learned as well not to waste a drop.


  2. I am also grateful for having running water after years of having to stand in a queue to draw water when I was growing up and sometimes walking a couple of kilometers when local taps had run dry. I am also grateful that my parents now have the ‘luxury’ of running water in their house. I am even more grateful that their water is from their own borehole as they just have to turn on a knob when the water runs low in the tank. Ah, the simple treasures of life!.
