I take them all for granted. Just a part of my daily life. Never a second thought as to where my next meal will come from. Just open the pantry and the choices are overwhelming...but to a mom in Guatemala not the case. Never a second thought as to where my clean water comes from. Just turn out the spigot, any 7 in my home, and out it pours and pours...but to a mom in Guatemala not the case. Never a second thought as to what to wear. Just open my closets and it is crammed full, mostly with clothes never touched...but to a mom in Guatemala not the case. Never a second thought when the light is dim. Just turn on a lamp, one of the eighteen I own, flip a switch, one of the twenty four in my home...but to a mom in Guatemala not the case. I take them all taken for granted!
