Such a simple thing to find joy in, I suppose. But I love water. I love to drink it. I love to swim in it. I love sitting by it or riding on top of it. And as I was taking my not so environmentally sound shower this morning (because I KNOW it took longer than 3 minutes) I was so thankful that it was running clear and warm over my body. But only 1% of the earth's water supply is fresh water. So I reluctantly turned the faucet off. I thought of all the people around the world who struggle for clean, pure, safe water. One billion people lack the basic, safe water supply necessary to thrive. In places without adequate water supply and standard safety measures the child mortality rate increases multiplied by 20. Most of our body is made up of water. Water is essential for our survival. It's a resource that I know I take for granted. But today, as I sip my clean, cool glass of water I will find joy in it.
