So thankful for the bucket. So thankful our use of it is temporary. Not having water really puts life into perspective, especially for our kids. This morning at 6:45 while I was in the shower before church, the water completely turned off suddenly. Long story short, our well pump died. We missed church sadly (due to the time it took to figure out what was wrong and what to do about it) and spent the day conserving the small amount of drinking water we had and using our neighbor's hose to fill this bucket for the potty. The man to fix the well came at 7pm tonight but couldn't fix it and is coming back tomorrow with what is needed to fix it. I'm thankful for so much and this bucket is a small reminder. All day I have had constant thoughts (and discussions) about how much of the world lives in regards to water. We are so blessed. Honestly I'm thankful today happened, to give my kids a teeny tiny glimpse. Water is such a gift.

  • butterflikisstleAgreed. Water is so precious and we tend to take it for granted. When we decided to move and work in China, I finally realized after 32 years of my life how blessed I have been to rarely worry about water and never to the extent I have now that we live here.
  • marijke01zaWe live in Western Cape South Africa and facing drought for the second year in a row. We have less than 30 days worth of water in our dams left. It is hard to wash 5 people in a baby bath's worth of water and then walk past a house with a lush green lawn!
