It’s easy to forget the simple conveniences that surround us here in the “land of plenty,” and my kids seem to remind me of this fact daily.
Mom: That is a drinking fountain! Wanna try it?
Mom: You can drink out of it. Here, let me help you.
Mom: Yup, and you can wash your hands too.
Within seconds, she runs off to tell daddy of this new discovery: (with incredible excitement), “Daddy!! I saw a drinking fountain!! You can wash your hands AND there is fresh water to drink!!” Such simple joys. They are a new favorite attraction wherever we go.
