30 Days of Thanks: Day 12

I'm thankful for my appliances.
I know, 
that's weird.

But last night I went to bed with my dishwasher cleaning up the
remains of the 6x batch of biscotti I made for the craft fair,
the washing machine cleaning towels,
the dryer getting things all dry and fluffy and smelling pretty.

I didn't have to heat the water for my shower over a fire,
I didn't have to boil it to drink it either.

I can bake cookies at a nice, even 350* without
once wondering if my power is going to stay on,
or if I need to add wood to the fire.

I plugged in the vacuum to get the carpets

I flip a switch and more food goes
down my garbage disposal than
a child living in many places in the world
was able to get to eat today.

I have machines doing my work for me,
making my life easier,
making my life prettier,
and making my life more fun...

and I'm thankful for that!
