My husband recently went out of town for business and we stayed the night in a hotel. It’s funny how an overnight hotel stay made me realize how simple we’ve been living this past year. Our 4 year old marveled at the fact that the water wasn’t running out for the bathtub and our 2 year old was memorized by the tv. He wasn’t quite understanding how there were endless movies and he thought the remote was some kind of phone. They had fun flipping the light switch on and off and we did take more than bath. It felt like a luxury and it made me think of people and children in third world countries who will never have access to clean water, let alone a hot shower. It makes you very humble to stop and think just how lucky we are. If we have accomplished anything this past year I hope it is that we instilled in our children to be grateful for what they have and to realize its possible to live with less and be happy!
