Thought for Today

A Thought.

I kind of like this word.  It means the action or process of thinking.  Synonyms being thinking, contemplation, musing, pondering, consideration, reflection, introspection, deliberation, concentration, etc.

Just the other day I had a thought about what the most important elements are for survival.  A reflective moment, if you will.  I had been without water in my home for over 24 hours.  I’ve experienced being without heat and electricity for longer periods, but never without water for a long period of time.   I was most thankful for bottled water during my water outage, and I had a place to go for a shower.

An hour after restoring water while sitting at the kitchen table having dinner, I sat for an extra 10 minutes thinking about what items people could really live without for an extended period of time.  If you think about it for a moment…years ago people didn’t have electricity or solar power in order to keep warm or cook.   They had to rely on a wood stove or fireplace for heat and some other light source for reading.

So the one item we cannot live without is water.  We need it to survive!  We drink it, cook with it, and clean with it.  So the thought/reminder I’d like to share is:  be good to our planet.  The day may come when do not have a water processing plant.
