Spoiled American

This is blogging for myself is all brand new to me. Hopefully I'll be a quick study.
Yesterday my refrigerator decided it didn't want to work anymore. All this time I've walked past the extra one in the garage wondering why we were paying the electric to run it. Now, when I walk past it, I think of how much money it saved us, not having to replace our food. Today. My Slim Fast breakfast was not blended with ice as it usually is. This afternoon, the glass of water had no ice in it. If you know me, you know it's all about the ice. (or the caffiene) I had to reflect on the fact that some would be greatful for a glass of water without ice. Or a glass of water without unimaginable filth in it. Or, dare I say it, a glass. What a spoiled American I am. This and many other happenings recently have reminded me that living in America is indeed a blesssing. It doesn't go this well in other places. My refrigerator is fixed, and I can hear my freshly made ice falling into the dispenser. God, how you have blessed me.
