You know what’s nice about having a broken toilet?
It reminds me that I have a second toilet.
Isn’t that such a blessing? …To have toilet options?
And you know what would be nice even if I didn’t have toilet options?
That all of my neighbors are kind enough that they’d graciously offer their own toilets if I really needed it.
I’m thankful for good neighbors and one good toilet.
I’ve got another one.
Brian and I need not venture to the Andes as we have our very own mountain of laundry to put away. When I say mountain, I mean mountain. We’ve been trying to catch up on laundry the past couple of days, but it seems like the never-ending chore. There’s so much laundry to be sorted, in fact, that tonight when we had company for dinner, I just insisted that Brian kept the bedroom door shut.
My embarrassing and overwhelming pile of laundry just reminds me that 1) I’m so blessed to have such a provision of clothing that even when I’ve gone ten days without washing/drying one garment, I still have clothes to wear and 2) I have doors.
Is there anything in your life that isn’t necessarily ideal, but with perspective just reminds you how good you’ve really got it?
