Thankful for Health


woman joyful for healthy livingA very happy Thanksgiving to our virtual community!  We are very grateful for each one of you.  As my mom always says in greeting today, “Gobble Gobble Gobble!”

When we sit down to enjoy the feast this holiday, it is inevitable that minds and conversation will turn to what are we thankful for.  When I was a kid, I never quite understood why some of the older members of my family would say they were grateful for health.  Ah, a child’s naivite regarding mortality…  Now I thank my lucky stars every day for mine.

Really, when you think about it, without this body, I couldn’t do anything.  Am I a supermodel?  Not by the current standards of the fashion industry.  And why in the world would I care about that?

I love this body of mine so much.  It is just capable of so many things.  It allows me to dance around the kitchen, sing along with the radio, jump in joy, run (and keep up) with the kids in my life, stroll hand in hand with my spouse, and even digest an awesome meal.

As you approach your turkey coma later today, take a moment to be grateful for yourself and the magical shell you wear everyday.  What are you thankful for in regards to your health and body?
