Thankful for your body – from head to toes and everywhere between. If you’re at all like me, there are parts of your body that you don’t like and don’t feel much gratefulness for… 

and yet…


I have two hands and two feet. My head sits comfortably on my neck and shoulders. I’m typing these words so my fingers work, my brain is active, and my thoughts are (somewhat) organized. I’ve eaten lunch and it’s sitting comfortably in my stomach. I have faith that it will nourish me. And then, what I don’t need will pass through.

Even though my body is not perfect and parts are feeling their age, I do value it.

I am thankful to be able to use my body to the degree I can.

What about you?

Spend a few moments thinking about all the parts of your body – those you can see and those that are hidden under the skin. We take for granted when they work and moan and groan and worry when they don’t.

Start at the top of your head and work your way down to your toes… make a list of all the parts of your physical body you’re thankful for and why.

(Just for now, ignore what is a problem. Instead, focus on what IS working!)

Let’s be thankful for our body!
