Taken For Granted

Back in January I sprang my little arm.  The only arm I have and I messed it up pretty good.  All my life I've walked around thinking my limbs (the two I have) were indestructible.  I took them for granted.  I over used them and my arm decided to just shut down.  For a week I couldn't feed myself, type, brush my own teeth, bathe myself or even scratch my own nose.  I was miserable!  But in this misery a thought formulated.  I began to feel gratitude for this down time.  I started to realize just how much I didn't appreciate my arm.  I took it for granted.

I realized I had to cut back on much of what I was doing with and to my arm.  Every day I wake up and express gratitude for my arm, leg, eyes, nose and ears.  I even kiss my hand to show it affection (it can't hurt right?).  Daily we take so much for granted.  I didn't like the truth of this, but it is what it is.  I am going through my daily walk being well aware and appreciative of the little things I/we tend to take for granted.

I Appreciate...
-Clean water
-Awesome pots and pans to prepare meals for my family
-Pretty plates to place food on
-The air-conditioner
-Sweet smelling soaps to clean my body
-My limbs
-Clean toothbrushes and toothpaste

What are you no longer taking for granted?
