Once Taken for Granted

Many concerns almost kept me from making the trip to India. I’ll admit that one such worry was bucket bathing in cold temps for two weeks.

Touring through the villages and watching the people’s ways…them bathing in public, scrubbing dishes streetside. Pausing in their chores as we strolled by to smile and wave.

Back at our campus…a plastic bucket full of water was never appreciated so much. I was told I’d learn how to not waste through this practice. Not waste water. Food. Words. (Are my posts getting less lengthy?) I do know this…I’m grateful for this experience and the learning I’m gaining. And I’m hoping to be more mindful of blessings once taken for granted.
