Water truck

This makes me so thankful for what I have.

Two times a day, a water truck stops in my neighborhood and dozens of people gather around with their containers to fill them up with the water they need throughout the day.

The truck blocks traffic, fills the road with puddles and mud and could be considered a general nuisance.

But not if you really think about what that truck is doing there.

And remember that in your own house is running water.
I don't have to stand around a truck, waiting my turn to fill as many containers as I can carry so that I can have water in my home.
That is not my reality.

But it is someone's.
It is for these neighbors of mine.

So I'll turn on my faucet and be a little more thankful today.
