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.
“Put your hand on your heart and feel your own heartbeat.”
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.
- 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
Hope you have a great day!
