My electricity went out last week. Aside from my knee-jerk “Did I pay. the bill?” panic (I was a broke single mother for a long time), I knew I’d be fine. It’s plenty warm here and I have battery powered lanterns stashed all over the house. My main regrets were not having the laptop and the iPad fully charged and not being able to make quesadillas which I’d prepped all the stuff for.
Then the power came back on, and for hours after that, every time I thought about electricity, I wriggled all over with happiness because I had some. Sometimes we just need to be reminded how happy we are.
What made you happy this week?
