30 Day Challenge Post #13

Today is simple – Water.  It’s one of the 4 most important things you need to live – the others being Air, Shelter, and Food.  Over the past week my kitchen sink has been out of order because of a broken seal.  I didn’t feel the need to buy a new faucet and was able to order a replacement seal that would be delivered to my home in 5 days.  It’s amazing what we can take for granted and that simple task of turning the handle on a faucet could set my day off in the wrong way.

Today my faucet was better than new.  “It” looked revived and “I” felt revived.   Then it dawned on me how easy it was for me to get clean water any second, minute, and hour of any given day.  What a luxury this was and how fortunate I am.  We have people, families, children, and even animals in our own country, and around the world, that don’t even have clean water to drink.

As an Aquarian, the water bearer zodiac, I think this was my sign to invest in helping others get clear water.   I’m not sure what I will do yet, but I know that I cannot take that action for grated anymore.  I know this is a growing issue, but like the saying goes “if you only have faith the size of a mustard seed…” Well the mustard seed has just been planted for me.

Today – I am thankful for the simple twist of a handle that brings forth clean water to drink.  May I find a way to help others, no matter how small or great, for no one should be without water to drink – be it from a faucet or some other means.
