Grateful #4

Man I am a slacker... I should be up to at least 14 grateful posts by now... I guess if you take into account that I put more than one thing on each of the other posts I might be somewhat current. 

My body-
So very far from what I think it should be. I am so very thankful for this gift. I am thankful it has given me Eight pregnancies, four of which resulted in my little herd. I am thankful for my wacky curly hair, it is fun to have something bouncy. I am thankful for good eyes and teeth. I am thankful for strong arms to carry my babies, oxygen, and a car load of groceries. I am thankful for my feet, my toes make me happy cause they look nice all sparkled up and they are kinda square like Flinstones feet. I am thankful for all the "extras" because that means my body grew humans and nourished them and that is a big deal. I am so thankful for things inside me... Man, I thought I knew something about my insides... I have learned more medical jargon and anatomy in the past 6 years than I ever did in my classes in high school. So my heart and spine are obvious... Now my lungs too... So amazing the jobs these things do. I am thankful for my voice.. I am a shower diva, I love to sing.. If I have to do it in public I throw up. I have the worst stage fright ever.  I am thankful for it just the same because jamming out with my kids is just as cool as singing in front of a million people. One day I might get over it.(probably not) it does make me grateful for others voices!!! I love to be sung to! I am thankful my mouth in general. All I can say is "pathway to my tummy", and best smoocher reciever from my boyfriend/hubby and kiddles!!! Like I said before, I know that there are areas of improvement. But I am so grateful for this one I got!

Such a great post! I wonder if Jake has anything to do with your stage fright? One of our family videos has him chucking a ball hard into your stomach as you were performing at the family reunion. I would totally blame him, if I were you. LOVE YA!
