Thanks that I'm thankful for today

I had a nice conversation yesterday with my friend Mark, and he talked about how our perception of what we need in life varies substantially by where we live in the world--distinguishing "first-world" vs. "third-world" needs.

So, today I have been thankful for many of the things that I normally don't take time to be thankful for, including:
* fresh, safe food to eat
* clean water to drink
* a sewer system to remove waste
* a sturdy house to keep the elements out
* the prospect of decades more life to enjoy.

What are you thankful for today?

Washing machines. They are underappreciated.
