This morning I found great gratitude in the what we consider the simplest of task, that of taking a hot shower. This is one of the things that we seem to take for granted, but when you really think about it there is much behind it.
It wasn’t too long ago in our history where taking a hot shower was something of a mystery. People had to heat hot water on the kettle to add to a bath tub to find the right balance of temperature that is suitable for bathing one’s self. By simply turning on the shower and regulating the cold and hot water with a handle would be a miracle to those folks back then.
Yes, this morning I am grateful that I live in a period in our history where I can step into a hot shower and clean my body in a matter of just a few minutes.
