Dear Editor,

It! What is it? For me, it is anything I take for granted on a daily basis without even thinking about it. I never think about it until it isn't where it's suppose to be!

That's what happened to me Saturday (June 16) around 6 p.m. when I came home from the noodling events at Wacker Park.

As I was turning into my drive I hit the remote to open the garage. Nothing happened! Hit it again! Again, nothing happened.

What's this? It worked when I left, why doesn't it work now.

Got out and went inside to find the directions for the opener and read them. Did what was suggested. Again, nothing happened.

When my wife, Nancy, saw me attempting to work the opener she told me the electricity was out. I was relieved. Didn't have to spend money getting my garage door opener fixed.

That is when I realized how much I take for granted on a daily basis.

The it's of my life are not necessarily there all the time. They are a blessing and should not be overlooked.

Thankfully, at times like this, there are workers who will respond to my broken it of the moment and fix it.

My thanks go out to the OG&E workers who made my it of Saturday, be there again so that I can, again, take it for granted.
