What do you think we take for granted?

I took my teen years for granted...I wanted to grow up too fast... What about you moms.... I also took the "taking a shower for granted" bc i had to go a week without a shower..our electric went out due to power outage and we have well water so..yea I had to use baby wipes and etc to get clean...

  • I think we take for granted the miracle that life is... we just assume there will be a tomorrow for each of us. We're not guaranteed so much as the next hour!

  • Yeah I'm with you, I took having power for granted. In 2002 there was a huge ice storm here in NC. We went without power for only three days, but it was HELL. No heat, no toilet (we were on well water), no phone, no TV, no computer (I was 14, sue me), no nothiiiiing. In order to flush the toilet ONCE, we had to put ice in a huge bucket, let it melt for a few hours on the kerosene heater, pour it in the toilet, then use the bathroom and flush it. We went to the YMCA to take a shower.

    Yeah, the world pretty much stops in NC when it snows or ices =D

  • Everything. We have turned into a very selfish now now now gimme gimme gimme society. Count how many fast food joints, drive thru banks, coffee shops, pharamcy's are on your main drag where you live. We are very lazy people.
