I recently read a blog in which the writer discussed how easy it was to take some of the most basic things--things that make our lives easier, and help them run more smoothly--for granted.
So...here is my "List of gratefuls--the basics":
-my beautiful house
-my washer and dryer
-a good heating system
-automatic coffee pots
It's nowhere near all of the things that make my life easier, but it's a start.
