So I know this may sounds odd, but I am grateful to have good drinking water without a filter. There are millions of people in this world who do not have access to drinkable water. At least not easily. And I think I take for granted that I can use any sink in my house or my refrigerator to get water out of. And most of you know I drink about 100 ounces a day, so it is a good thing I don't have to buy that daily!!!
