366 Project - Day 334 - "Abstract (Improvements)"

November 29, 2016 - "Abstract (Improvements)"

Construction continues in our neighborhood.

Leaving well water behind for city water lines...

Leaving septic systems behind for city sewer lines...

Improvements are a good thing... I just wish they didn't have to be so, well, "messy". Our yard has been dug up, filled in, dug up again, and filled in again at least a half-dozen times over the last year!

Still... it's a small sacrifice... only a minor inconvenience in the great big scheme of things. There are so many people in the world without access to clean water, let alone running water with consistent water pressure. There are so many who do not have a sewage system to properly dispose of waste, and therefore live in conditions none of us would ever be willing to have to suffer.

As I stand watching the improvements occurring in our neighborhood, I can't help but think of those people... and I pray for them as I give thanks for all that I have been blessed with in life.
