Taken for Granted

Lying on the floor, listening to the wind, watching Twitter and Facebook for interesting storm updates. So far, we haven't had any complications, but a few friends have already lost power. Storms like this make me realize how many things we take for granted in our lives until we might not have them.

Electricity to do laundry, keep our cell phones charged, run our computers, read after dark, cook food, keep cold food from spoiling... Running water (although odds are slim that we'll lose that, since we're not on a well) for showers, toilets, drinking, cleaning... Weather-proof home to protect us and our belongings from rain, cold, wind, debris...

Say a prayer tonight for those who have already lost these luxuries.
