"I sing the body electric."
~Walt Whitman~

Let's be grateful for our bodies. Let's celebrate our breathing lungs and hearts that beat. Let's appreciate our incredible eyes, and ears, and fingers, our senses, and our instincts.
    Let's be grateful for goose-bumps and stamina and digestion and arousal. Let's be grateful for spines and shoulders and knees that bend. Let's be grateful for all of our flesh and bones, our muscle, nerves, glands and ducts.
     Our bodies are beautiful miracles of design. Let's be grateful that we are here and that we function. Let's be grateful for this solid form to negotiate this solid earth.

I appreciate my body with all of its miraculous moving parts.
