The earth is 70% water. Our bodies are 60%. We can only live for 3 days without it.

It’s a big deal.

I’m constantly refilling my reusable bottle, it goes everywhere with me. In the car. At work. On my nightstand. I find that I’m anxious if I don’t have it with me. I’m even more thirsty now. Thanks, breastfeeding.

If you’re reading this you’re probably not too far from a source of clean drinking water.

I am so thankful for water. For access to fresh, pure, clear water.

Many of us fill our swimming pools, water our lawns or wash our laundry with cleaner water than much of the world’s population has access to. Imagine if you had to walk to a well every day, several times a day to gather water for you and your family. Or you had one source of shared dirty water that was used for everything – drinking, cooking, cleaning and bathing. That’s a fact of life for so many people.

I often forget how easy it is to just turn the knob and find freshwater almost anywhere. Don’t we all?

I have a pair, and I love them.

Shoes. Water. Thankful.
