I think about how funny it is that at home, I can take two baths a day (and I’m not even really dirty) and I fill the tub as full as I can. When I take a shower, I run the water a lot in the beginning, and tend to stand in the water while it runs, just because I can. I’ve always known it was waste but until I was here I didn’t really do anything about it. I know that I don’t have the option of actually sending water here (like when you were little and parents would say “there are children in Africa starving”) but I think this whole experience has shown me how I waste God’s wondrous resources all the time. I found myself asking God what I should give up, how I can use the money that He has provided for better things.
