Have you thought of how today was a blessing and tomorrow is a blessing as well. Until you learn to see the blessings you have will you see the blessings as just beyond your reach. That was how my life used to be until I learned this I had to learn reality. I spent my days looking at all the good that others had and I wanted. I spent my life in misery wondering why I never could find happiness. Until one day out of the clear blue I heard an inspirational story of a man who was born without his arms or feet but he had a webbed partial foot he used to do exceptional things that the normal person took advantage of. How could I not be grateful for my body that God gave me with it's perfectly developed limbs. I began to thank God for my hands, my legs , my feet , and my arms. What I took for granted every waking day of my life. This young man was active He did not sit at home feeling sorry for himself. As a matter of fact, he spent his days going around the nation inspiring ungrateful people like myself to be able to see the blessing their bodies were (even though I hated my obese body). I learned that day that my body indeed is a blessing. I learned of the need to take care of my body better and in those moments I learned to be grateful. Everyday of my life in my body is a blessing. AMEN.
