Things I've taken for granted...

-being able to put my pants on while standing up!
-being able to chase and catch a running 2 year old.
-being able to clean my whole house from top to bottom in a single day.
-being able to exercise.
-being able to drive a car.
-being able to walk with my kids to the park.
-being able to carry something from one place to another.
-being able to do ALL that's asked of me.

What have you taken for granted lately?

I know I won't take these things for granted ever again. I'll think about how grateful I am that I can, everytime...
I change a poopy diaper, get dressed, have to clean my house, have to chase my child, go to the store, have to walk the dogs, etc.

If your body is working the way it's meant to, you have SO much to be thankful for. If your body is working somewhat for you, you still have so much to be thankful for.

I know I am thankful everyday that I wasn't paralyzed or killed. I'm thankful that I can still somewhat take care of my family and hug my kids and play with them. That I can enjoy the world around me. That I can live!


  1. Hello! I'm waiting for another post. One of your new year's resolutions to update your blog right?! :) And yes I am glad that my body is working and I will enjoy my knees as long as they last. Hope that you are feeling better too!
