It’s the 5th day of my 365 day Thanksgiving challenge. I recently found out than an old friend of mine was diagnosed with cancer. I spoke with him on the phone yesterday and despite his condition his spirits were high and he seemed to have the right attitude. It made me pause for a moment to think about my health.
Day 5 – Thanks for my health. Everyone says this to themselves at one point or another. However, yesterday it resonated with me. I workout when I can, but I don’t watch what I eat and track cholesterol or fat content of foods. Like many people, I enjoy the food that they say you’re not supposed to eat. I could lose a few pounds and take better care of myself. Perhaps this will get me motivated to do so? We’ll see. In the meantime, I’m grateful for my current state of health.
- Thanks for the life I’ve had.
- Thanks for the hospitality of our favorite server.
- Thanks for freedom to practice my faith.
- Thanks for my wife’s understanding and support.
- Thanks for my health.
