Taken for granted, modern amenities help in basic ways

Countdown to Thanksgiving

Life in 2019 means all sorts of conveniences, including many that are taken for granted.

Today we are talking about some of our most basic infrastructure. Sometimes it costs money for upgrades, but in the end, we do want smooth roads, heat, electricity and water in our homes, plus a way to eliminate and treat our sewage.

When these things fail, we tend to grumble, and when they are working, we tend to not think about them.

So today’s moment of gratitude is dedicated to these modern amenities that we tend to take for granted.

Who, after all, isn’t thankful for indoor plumbing?
