Gratitude.

I woke up this morning and was so aware of my body. I feel young and strong. I take a deep breath. It is easy. I look at my hands. My fingers stretch out and close in a ball. There is no pain. I look around. I see the sun pouring into the room. I can see the details on my dresser that is far away. My sight is good. I hear the birds chirping outside our window. I hear a lawn mower in the distance. My heart beat is steady. I get out of bed and my legs are sturdy. I have a drink of water and it feel it cooling me as it goes down.

I am 28 years old and I can’t believe I ever hated my body. Thank you God for giving me this healthy, wonderful treasure.
