Miracles and Gratitude Day 14

When I was at my dad’s recently, I saw some Mindful cards my momma had bought one of us for Christmas. As I went through the cards, one in particular caught my eye.

It said:

“Put your hand on your heart and feel your own heartbeat.”

Say what?

That would mean slowing down enough to actually notice this amazing thing we have in our chests.

I tried it.

It instantly shifted my perspective on what a miracle a heart is and because of its work, what a miracle I am. We are.

My grateful list today is to offer somewhat of a ‘standing ovation’ to some parts of this body that keep me going, but tend to get taken for granted a bit. A ‘thank you’ so to speak.

Gratitude:

  • a heart that beats
  • eyes that see
  • ears that hear
  • liver that does many jobs
  • kidneys that flush
  • adrenals that handle hormones
  • brain that gives movements, memories, thoughts, and functioning
  • taste buds
  • nose that smells
  • skin that glows
  • hair that grows
  • lungs that breathe
