Ok I admit it I am a bit spoiled. Or maybe it is just that I am a HUGE fan of modern technology. I love the dish washer, washing machine, dryer, water heater, etc. You know the things that would have been luxuries for our grandparents? Today they are so common that we think we NEED them!
Well this weekend our dishwasher was giving all the signs that it was sick. And today it finally died.
Since I am not working anymore we have cut back alot and live on a budget. This means we can’t buy a new dishwasher right now. This brought me to think…
“IS this a necessity? We of course not. Our family would be no worse off without a dishwasher!”
It is grounding and eye opening when something that you think you NEED is not available and you realize you DO NOT NEED IT! This was a great lesson for me today. It was so much more than being about a dishwasher. It was a reminder about how you can make lemonade from lemons.
This may be a blessing in disquise.
