Today I am thankful for the appliances in my life. The washer in my home makes life easier than going to a laundromat and I assume they still exist. The same for my dryer. Even better are the refrig and stove/oven. They give me the ability to choose my own food, store it and cook it. Though not actually an appliance, I am grateful for my car and the ability to pay for gas and insurance and the opportunity to help others.
