Thankful

I hear a lot of complaining about our country, and I've done some of it myself. I have to say, though---until we can go live in our real Home, we have it pretty nice as American citizens.

We flew back to the US on June 7th. Here is my list of things to be thankful for here at home.

Good roads; ease of travel
US prices--don't laugh; in Haiti gas is nearly $6 a gallon, USD
Store shelves that are full of choices
Communication--phone, internet, and etc available wherever you go
Close contact with family and friends
Electricity
Air conditioning and heating
Hot water
Clean cities and communities
Our government and law enforcement systems --they may be far from perfect, but others are much, much worse

That's enough for now; I could go on and on, but I'll spare you that. :)
