Able bodied – adjective: Fit, strong, and healthy; not physically disabled.
Every single day I walk up stairs, get out of bed without pain, play with my dog, stand in the kitchen to cook meals with my family, and much more.
Most of the time I don’t think about what my life would be like if I couldn’t do all of these wonderful things. What if I was constantly in the hospital? What if I was paralyzed? What if… you get the point.
Today I am giving thanks for my body. I love that my legs can walk me to my classes, my arms can lift a sheet of cookies from the oven, and my feet can splash in a pool. I am so blessed to be healthy and alive!
I’m so happy I can play 🙂 [..and take dumb/scary pictures ;)]
I’m so grateful that I have arms to open up and bear hug my little sister.
I feel so blessed to be able to run.
By giving thanks for my able body, I am making sure to feed it right and exercise it. I refuse to do drugs or anything that harms the body God blessed me with. I think exercise can tie into stress relief and I am thankful that one of the hobbies that I enjoy (running) is something that I am able to physically do. It all connects and pretty much shows how awesome God is. Just saying.
Amen to that!
well said friend. God gave us an ABLE body. Thank you God.
This really puts things into perspective. What a great post, Allie!
I love the pics in this plus the whole idea :). So great to be thankful that we can work out, cook, bake, go to college, work, etc. Because those are opportunities that so many don’t have…
Love this post. It is so easy to forget about the simple things in life and where they take us. Awesome post Allie!
This is one I love to be thankful for too! That I am able to do so much and feel good physically.
Love this post 🙂 We all need to stop and be thankful for all of the things our bodies do for us sometimes…
This is so true!!! We often take our able bodies for granted! Lovely post 🙂
What a lovely post 🙂 So very true 🙂
LOVE these kinds of posts – so inspiring! We take our bodies for granted every single day and we have to start taking a step back and realizing how amazing our bodies are for doing what they do on a daily basis. Thanks for the reminder!
Great post, girl!!
