A house. A home.
Four walls and a roof.
When it snows, when it sleets, when it is frigid out.
We should stop and take a minute to be grateful for living in 2017.
For having protection from the elements.
Hurricanes, tornadoes, blizzards.
The Earth is a powerful, volatile place.
It is easy to forget how lucky we are.
For a place to sleep.
For today, we have what we need.
We can stay safe and warm.
Those we love are protected from the elements in ways that our ancestors could never have envisioned.
So we give thanks.
And acknowledge the bounty of our lives.
