What about my body am I grateful for.

Today is more of a phrase than a word, just thinking of what about my body I am grateful for is a little hard but here I go.

With the blessing of getting older I have the opportunity to reflect on how wonderfully we are made. To be mindful of each moving and sometimes not so moving part. It’s hard to pick one but for me this morning I am so thankful for my knees. These wonderful joints  I sometimes over look until I hurt one are amazing.

As I sat and turned to get out of my bed I looked at my legs hanging over and thanks to my knees (my modified hinge joint) they are hanging over bent.

What a wonderful blessing to be able to move my lower and upper leg with minimal effort. Sometimes I am reminded that years of running have put my poor knees to the test but I am so thankful for them.


Hi, I'm Gwyn a entrepreneur, mom of 2 and a grandma of 2! I had been married for a long time to an abusive alcoholic, this left me feeling broken and forgetting who I really was. I started gwyns day 1 as a way for me to share the awesome way God can heal, restore and give a wonderful life full of purpose and joy. My greatest passion is my family but also helping others . With this blog I hope to share uplifting quotes and stories for a healthy mind body and soul life style, as well as fun with crafts and recipes. Here is my mantra and the whole reason for the name of this blog, what a great reminder that every day is a brand new day we can start fresh and do better.
