This morning my daughter was thirsty and kept asking for drinks of water. I filled up her cup yet again, but I was frustrated that she needed refill after refill. Immediately after she left the room, I sat down at the computer and checked up on the latest news with Haiti. I watched a video of people running through the streets all because of a rumor they heard about water possibly being available. Tears came to my eyes instantly.
I'm so thankful that all my daughter has to do is ask, and she can have a drink of water. I just push the water button on my refrigerator and out it comes. I am glad she doesn't know what it is like to be without water for days. I'm grateful for the simple things today, such as food, water, and shelter. In the meantime, I'm praying for the people of Haiti after this earthquake. I'm praying for all those thirsty kids and all those moms that would give their children a drink if they had any to give.
