If all this was taken away I would feel like something was missing from my life and that thought scares me. I definitely do not want to rely on these "things" to allow my life to be fullfilled. I will never again take these things for granted and strive to look at them as a blessing.
Its so easy to get caught up in the materialism of this world, I am happy to be brought back to life's simplicity every once in a while. I could survive with no power and that thought is reassuring- just give me running shoes!!! ;-) oh, and I am thankful to be able to run!
