I am Thankful for Water
At our house, we rely on a well to get water.
Our well is 902 feet deep!
You'd think a hole that deep would have water, no matter what.
We have water right now, but I don't know what the summer holds. We are in what the National Weather service calls an "Exceptional" drought. Somehow 'exceptional' seems like the wrong word to use.
One of my best friends has a well that is in the 800+ ft. depths. She is experiencing periods of short water supply. Her well pump is as deep as it can be dropped in that 800ft. hole.
This might seem like another obvious thing to be thankful for, but can you remember a time when you were without water?
Have you been unable to brush your teeth or flush your toilet, let alone take a shower?
Can you imagine hauling water several miles in a dirty container so you can feed your family?
I know folks in the midwest are suffering badly right now with an overabundance of water. The flooding is catastrophic.
I don't know the hows and whys to weather, but wish the folks in the midwest could be relieved of their flooding waters by having some of that rain come this way.
My prayers go out to each of those affected by the floods.
My prayers for those of us suffering from droughts and dry wells, as well.
What are you thankful for today?
