Mary’s Water Words

My wife Mary wrote this on her Facebook page and I want to share it with you all.
Those of us lucky enough to enjoy pure Rocky Mountain water know. . .
Mary Ciletti
I just want to say that I love water. I love how, every time I want it, it pours out of the tap, and I lap it up, grateful for every drop, feeling the moistness as it quenches my thirst, soaking my throat with deliciousness, clean , heavenly joy as I revel in it’s sensate gift to me. I love that I can shower in it, wash my hair in it, water my plants with it, clean my house with it, and just gratefully luxuriate in it. Please, please don’t ever go away, my beautiful water. Please stay clean and wet and lovely! I promise never to waste a drop of you, never let you run and run and run, while I carelessly disregard the gift of you. I love you, water, you are so precious to me, and I thank you every day for the bounty you give to each day of my life!
