Dearest Body, Thank You!
Thank you for your size and shape. Thank you for housing this brain, this heart, this spirit. Thank you for these hands, these feet, this stomach. Thank you for these magnificent thighs. From this day forward, I will tell you how much I respect you. I will share with you that I see how hard you work. I will honour your strength. I will give thanks for your mysteries. I will make time for laughter. I will take things off your shoulders. I will put you to bed early, I will let you get up without an alarm. I will let you honour your rhythms and cycles and seasons. I will make sure you have enough before I give anything away. I will tell you out loud and in front of everyone that I love you.
