Today I am thankful for cotton. Though cotton carries with it a somewhat unpleasant history in this country, it has certainly proven itself to be a very useful material. After all, it can be used to make clothing, added to bottles of pills to prevent the pills from breaking up, and used in the creation of a plethora of hygiene-related items. In fact, its versatility is one of its greatest qualities.
And though I certainly would not say that cotton is a material that is indispensable in my life, I must note that I do make use of it enough on a regular basis that its absence would certainly be noticed, especially when it concerns having access to the nice and lite clothing that I like to wear to stay cool during the summer months when it is extremely hot outside. Let’s face it, a desert summer without having access to clothes that are made of cool fabrics like cotton is practically unbearable. And since I have already shared with you the fact that I am not a fan of extreme heat, my appreciation for cotton should come as no surprise. #lovebythedrop
