What it takes to get through the day

There are times when we grumble about life's everyday hardships. About the many things we have to do to during the day and how much time it all takes. And then we see something that makes us think about what everyday life might have been for those generations that were here before us. More simple perhaps, but lots of effort to do almost anything.
     I just think how long it took them to get anywhere especially without roads of any kind. When we put life in perspective . . . it often helps us appreciate what we have.


  1. So well spoken. The changes that my mother at 86 has seen in her lifetime is huge. Can you even imagine what her grandmother had to live with.

  2. That is so very true - I know how things have changed drastically (especially for us women) even since my mum's generation, and especially since my grandma's generation. Housework in those days was real hard work. They didn't need to go to the gym!!

  3. i think about this when i have the coffee maker brewing and the dishwasher running!
