The best things in life

Sometimes we go about our lives forgetting how blessed we are and how lucky we are to be first world residents. I know I do, and when I hear first world whining I often try to gently point out to the whiner that perhaps there might be a good reason for others seemingly strange or annoying behavior. Like the woman who was complaining on Twitter about another passenger that was barefoot in the waiting area. To me, a champion of never wearing anything on my feet whenever possible, responded that perhaps the offender had neuropathy or other foot problems that made shoe wearing painful. This pissed off the poster, who was looking for agreement amongst her fellow tweeters.

Today in the mail came a gift from a friend. It was a simple gift, but so meaningful and so welcome. Those kind of gifts are the best, aren't they? They make me realize how lucky I am to have people that care for our dysfunctional family and know how to make the perfect gift to enhance our lives.

So what did I get in the mail? A shower curtain and hooks. Something we take totally for granted until we don't have one. We put it up immediately and I was in hot water within minutes of hanging it up. OMG, that was the best shower ever. I can't even begin to describe how much joy I got just standing under a hot stream of water, shampooing my hair. It was freaking fabulous!

Better yet, I got to put on all clean clothes after a long trip to the laundramat!  I was positively spottless, and it felt great!
