Most people are very busy with their lives, so it is easy to forget about the little things. I'm not talking about things like family or friends (although they're really important, too). I'm talking about the mundane, everyday objects that we take for granted; I'm talking about five of them.
To the avid gardener, this addition to the list might seem blasphemous. To the rest of us lacking a green thumb, let's ask ourselves how often we stop or have time to appreciate these little green presents from nature. If you think about it, it's quite remarkable how far the Earth has come since it's inception.
Don't worry rocks, there is a special place for you here too. Without you, we would be walking on dirt (imagine rainy days, *shudders*) Think of Mount Rushmore, or the many statues the Greeks have made in honor of their deities. Or the times kids and adults skipped you across a lake.
3.) Pens and Pencils
"Excuse me, do you have a pencil I can borrow?" This is the only moment you are arguably the most appreciative of these writing utensils. However, I would imagine that the use of pens and pencils has dropped a bit since we have the option of writing with digital devices *wink*. Still, nothing beats the tactility of a pen to paper.
Speaking of, how many times have you looked back at your professor's syllabus because you woke up from a nap thinking that you must've forgotten about a homework assignment. Or the time when you had to write something down before you forgot it? Or the time you read your first book? Okay you might not remember the last one but still, we would not have the various literary masterpieces we know of today if paper had not been a thing.
And finally, after a workout, or just a long walk, is when I think people feel the most thankful to have access to water. Unfortunately, not everyone in the world has access to clean water. The four previous things on this list are derived from water too. Don't forget to drink your eight glasses of water a day!
