I am definitely learning to appreciate the little things in life! My dishwasher is one of them. I grew up with my 2 brothers and 1 sister and no dishwasher. When people asked my mom if she had a dishwasher, she always said she had 4 - I don't know if we were as amused by that response as her! But when I got married, I had a dishwasher in our first house, and my husband taught me to use it. Now...I think I might rely on it too much - but I am sure thankful to have it!
