parents. Since she had to do this before walking to school each day, the milking was usually done early in the morn- ing, in the dark, as neither barn had lights. For this to work I assume the cows had the routine figured out as well. For one Christmas she received a kerosene lantern so she would not have to milk in the dark. She was thrilled and still remembers that Christmas gift to this day. Next month she will be 88 years old and still wishing she could milk a cow or two. Even so, I think she prefers the electric lights over the lantern. Today we assume and expect so much as a “right,” that true appreciation of anything is fleeting. Years ago a Ten- nessee farmer rose in church and said, “My brothers and sisters, I want to tell you this. The greatest thing on earth is to have the love of God in your heart, and the next great- est thing is to have electricity in your house.” I am sure his home received electric service from an electric co-op. Truly appreciating electric service in our homes and busi- nesses is not something people in my generation or the fol- lowing two or three generations have the time or perspec- tive to do. We are driven by our expectations and that is not bad. Progress is driven by expectation of better ways. My mother, who is and always has been a member of Canadian Valley Electric Cooperative, lives in the country, miles from the substation so she occasionally experiences a “blink” or an outage with her electric service. While she appreciates electric service because she remembers living without it and is very satisfied with her electric service provider, her expectations for the reliability and quality of that service is just like the rest of us. If there is a blink, she always lets me know. Appreciation is great. Satisfaction is nice. But expectations drive all of us to do better.
