Yesterday we started hearing a gurgling noise coming through the toilets. Now I have a bathtub full of stinky, stuff filled water. This morning a plumber came by and said that the clay sewer pipes leading away from the house are either cracked or have tree roots in them. Now I am waiting for our landlord to make the necessary arrangements to fix the problem.
In the meantime, I cannot do the dishes, the laundry, take a shower, and there is only one toilet I can use. It really made me consider how lucky most Americans are to have running hot water, dishwashers, laundry facilities, and more in or around our homes.
So take a moment today to thank God for all that you have. I am so thankful that my parents live only minutes away where a shower is possible. More than that, I am thankful that my landlord is trying to get it taken care of as soon as possible.
