Whoever said "You don't know what you have until it's gone." sure made alot of sense! Last Monday, our fridge went out. And we just got a new one delivered today. So, the past 4 or 5 days, we've been storing our food in a little icebox in Dad's shop. It belonged to my great uncle and now Dad has it. Thank goodness we had that at least!! (Thank you, NaNonk! ♥) I must say, I never gave our fridge much recognition. Sure, I never insulted the thing, like Dad has!! (He always said it wasn't big enough, etc etc blah blah.) But, I never gave it much thought when I could just walk in the kitchen, open the fridge door, grab what I wanted, and walk away with a perfectly cold drink or food in hand.
But, when I woke up this morning, after a week, of having to go outside to get something to eat or drink, (which isn't a big deal, but you know...) and saw a brand new sparkling fridge in the kitchen; I wanted to hug it! (Which I did. HAH!) We live in a world where everything is at our fingertips. Everything is so accessible. Running water, a flick of a switch turns on lights and ceiling fans, buttons turn on every electronic gadget we own, fridges keep all of our foods and drinks cold, ac/heating. But, when something goes a little wrong with one of our many gadgets -- the world, seems to go, topsy turvy! But, when things go a little haywire; that's when you learn to appreciate how easy life is nowadays. We live in such interesting times!
