Gratitude.....nothin
g but gratitude!

Wednesday, March 05, 2014

Phooey! I want to exercise (I never dreamed I'd EVER in my life utter those words!)

This started out as a moany, groany blog..but I've deleted it twice. Sigh.

What if we lost everything we have, but take for granted? Think about it. Vision, hearing, breath, legs, arms, health, family, jobs, friends, roof over our head, food (even if it's not our favorite ice cream!), freedom, shoes, M&M's, flowers, teeth, natural beauty, sunsets, the Rocky Mountains, elk in the yard....

OK, so I don't get to exercise until my tendon heals. And then I'll have 4 toes operated on & won't get to exercise. Think of how lucky I am to have 2 feet and 10 toes...even if they are crooked!

I'll exercise my body later...for now I'll exercise my gratitude & track it, too!!

    You are absolutely correct, Nancy! I hope your tendon heals soon! My husband has terrible bunions, and he has been putting off surgery on them for years. He finally had to quit P90X because it aggravated them so much!

    Anyway, I hope the surgery will heal whatever ails them and you'll be back riding bikes and exercising before long!

    Keep up your good spirits!

    Attitude is everything. I like that quote that says it doesn't matter what happens, it's how you react to it. I truly believe that. No one likes a Debby Downer, lol!

    Good for you for remembering the silver lining in this situation.

    You are so right! I've tried to keep that thought in mind ever since my dad was diagnosed with ALS and lost the use of almost every part of his body.

    This is so true about how much we take for granted.
