Two nights ago my movable bed FROZE in the reading position.
I was pretty mad as I just purchased this in March! I changed batteries in the remote. I unplugged the unit for an hour. Then I called the retail outlet who said to call the manufacturer. I left a message there with no response. Then I sent an email. It's hard to coordinate repairs when I am leaving next Tuesday. The kids will have to live here (which they love!).
It's pretty cold here which made me wish I had purchased the next car package UP from what I bought ... so I could have a heated steering wheel. And remote start so the van would be warm when I got in.
At dinner, I wanted something other than what I have on hand. And that's when it hit me. These are all first world problems.
I have always had a bed (to myself unless I wanted to share). Some families sleep on the ground. Or many to a bed.
I have never gone hungry (except on purpose). And some families are so grateful for $50/month to feed their family of four.
I have always had reliable transportation and the money to put gasoline in it. I can't even imagine walking and carrying water on my shoulders.
Today I am prayerful. First world problems are not really problems at all. Minor blips in an upper middle class world. At worst. I am thankful.
