It's always good to practice gratitude. We had good reason to do so at the end of last week: the entire state lost power at about 4 in the afternoon. Yes, the entire state. That's about one sixth of the land mass of Australia. We were blessed and grateful to have a gas hob, wind-up torches, a log fire, and plenty of candles.
We were only without power for 6 hours in our suburb. Others got power back more quickly, but some are still without. It's not until something is gone that you realise how much you rely on it.
So don't take anything for granted, and be grateful!
