You never really appreciate something until it’s gone—whether momentarily, for hours, or forever. Take electricity, for example. I was without mine today for several hours. When calling to check the electricians’ progress (thank goodness for cell phones!), the receptionist told me that some people had been without power for about twenty-four hours! That made me feel sort of sheepish, so I told the lady it was fine. No problem. Since lack of power meant lack of heat, the house began to get chilly. The idea of lighting a bunch of candles came to me. It worked like a charm!
