We don't notice them but they make our life easier

It has been said that we often take things for granted. This is probably true. Every day we take for granted "the little things" that make our life easier. Can you think of some?

For example, a few things that I take for granted on a daily basis are;

those little plastic tips on the end of shoelaces. We all know how frustrating it can be to thread a shoe lace when you have a frayed end.

twist off bottle caps. When I think of all the time I used to waste looking for a "church key" or bottle opener.

the ATM machine. Man, to think that we used to have to wait until the bank was open to get some cash. Now I can get my money any time I want.....maybe that's why I have so little of it!!!

See....this is only the tip of the iceberg but there are tons of things that we use every day and it is often difficult to imagine how we ever got along without these items, yet we take them entirely for granted. Can you name some more?
