Our Good Fortune


A water main break
and temporary loss of running water
gives me pause to reflect
and consider the tremendous good fortune
we enjoy
when we turn the faucet handle
and clean water comes tumbling forth.
And then I ask myself–
What other miracles do I take for granted?
Let every small loss
and every challenge
wake me up to the enormity of my good fortune,
that I may more fully appreciate the wonder of this life.
