Gratitude

I am grateful for my health. In spite of aches and pains, and the occasional infection, I am robustly healthy. In the last year, I have taken fewer than 3 days off work due to health issues. That speaks of remarkably good health. My immune system may have a few foibles (I'm looking at you, allergies) but by and large it does an excellent job. I am strong enough to do my job, which includes lifting and sometimes physically restraining adult humans. I am strong enough to shovel snow, which I have done quite a bit recently. I may not be able to tolerate sub-zero temperatures very well, but I can tolerate 110+ heat reasonably well (not comfortably by any means, but vastly more functionally than the cold).

I am thankful for all the wonderful foods I can eat, that not everyone can. Wide varieties of vegetables, fruits, nuts, grains, and protein sources. I am thankful that I love eating vegetables - I bet that is part of how I am able to be as healthy as I am. I am thankful that I live two blocks from the local farmers' market and boy, am I looking forward to that season, so I can partake of gorgeous fresh fruits and vegetables as well as treats such as homemade jam, bread, and jerky. I am thankful for being able to enjoy dark chocolate (well, any kind of chocolate, really, but dark is a favorite plus it is good for us).

I am thankful that my body is a warm snuggly place for my wonderful, purring Harvey to rest.

I am thankful that I can walk a couple of miles at a shot.

I am thankful that taking vitamin D makes a lot of aches and pains go away. Thank you, Daniel, for suggesting it.
