Have you ever thanked all 206 members of your skeletal system for holding you up? You should, because no matter how difficult things might yet become, they won’t openly betray you.
Sometimes they only forget that they are holding human flesh within their homes, it’s why you fall.
But you rise again don’t you?
Have you thanked both your lungs for loving you all your life? You should for every single moment. Because they love you so much; so much so that they refuse to give up on you even on days when all you want is to cease from breathing altogether.
Have you kissed all of your ten fingers yesterday and today, both? You should, because they will say and keep on saying the things your mouth would never be brave enough to say.
Have you thanked the other members of your internal organs for this moment yet? You should, because thanks to them, you are ALIVE.
Talk to your body when no one wishes to address you, your body listens and it does love you.
Aside from your body, you should thank God above all else too —because if it weren’t for Him, you wouldn’t have a body.
You wouldn’t have a body left to thank and to love and live in.
