When I visited my friends Tito and Cynthia in Florida, once a week there was a beautiful sight. This one!
Lined up at the curb were these matching garbage cans. There are so many things we take for granted. Like this one—to have somebody collect our garbage. I have lived in places where it was not something to take for granted. And it was no fun when garbage would line the streets because the collectors were on strike. Especially when that happened in the summer. That was NOT a beautiful sight.
One day when I took one of my bike-rides in my neighborhood I observed the “freedom of choice” we have. Here is a collage of some of the garbage cans used where I live.
There are even more options. The company that I use for my garbage collection offers the option of buying garbage bags to fill up and put at the curb at my discretion. Since I live by myself and don’t spend all my time here it works perfectly. It costs me one fourth of the regular price.
Why am I talking about garbage cans? Maybe because I am doing the spring cleaning. Correction: I have someone doing the cleaning and I’m giving the orders! I praise the Lord I found a lady who could help me. We had a great time today and it was fun to have someone to eat lunch together with. We tackled the kitchen and the pantry. Tomorrow the garage is getting a cleaning.
I just thought I’d pass on one more reason to be thankful—that somebody collects our garbage!
