Legs

I just got back from a walk to the train stop in the nippy morning air. It felt wonderful to stretch my legs. Soren and I walk Scott to the station every morning and I really enjoy that laid-back time I get to spend with my family.

I've been thinking a lot lately how grateful I am for my legs. I love being able to walk and run. I love to dance! I love the sense of accomplishment and enjoyment that comes from physical exertion. I love propelling myself through life. I saw a show last week where a guy had to have a leg amputated. I was suddenly very grateful for my two legs. Actually, I should be grateful that my entire body functions properly (for the most part). How wonderful!

But remember, "If the good Lord had intended us to walk he wouldn't have invented roller-skates." :)

Or bicycles! Or Hummers. Actually, scratch the Hummers. Those are entirely our fault.

Interesting indeed...quite apropo given the topic on the other blog...
(as a sidebar, the "Why don't you marry her?" question is a poignant one that actually reveals most activists' hypocrisy)
