I love this picture. It is the kitchen sink of a pioneer. Just a simple bin to hold a couple of pots to catch water from an old-time pump. Of course most pioneers, if they were lucky enough to have a water pump, had to pump the water from outside and bring in into the kitchen. This picture reminds me of the simple life…it also reminds me of gratitude. It’s easy to not appreciate what we have, what we see every day. When you’re having a day when you just can’t seem to snap out of it and feel happy remember this old kitchen and the water pump. Then sit down, take a deep breath, and count every single thing that you are thankful for.
