I come from, if not a long line, then an impressive line of electricians. My Dad was an electrician, and my husband is as well. I have seen them both work and marveled at the technical skill it takes to bring power into a home or business. I marveled, yet I learned very little. It’s all just a little above my head.
However, I learned enough to understand that unless everything was wired exactly as it should be, there would be no power. Television sets would sit blankly staring back at us, lights would remain dark, washing machines and dryers would refuse to do their jobs and a host of other essential items would simply not function. Each of them fully equipped to work well, and all the necessary power readily available. But if the connection isn’t made, they remain powerless.
