Today I am thankful for the ability to get up, walk around and physically do most everything I want. Even though dance class kicked my butt today I still remain grateful that I am able to jump, leap and run. What's interesting is that if I had been alive just one hundred years ago, I may not have been able to do any of that. Since I wouldn't have been able to have surgery to correct scoliosis, my spine probably would have curved to the point of impairment or even death as it was going into my lungs. As scary a thought that is, it is one that I need to remember as I grimace over sit ups or complain about a stubbed tow. I am glad that I can stub my toe.
