Celebrating Feet

Have you ever really stopped to think about your feet and all they do for you? I think our feet are one of the most under appreciated parts of our bodies. They are absolutely miracles in their own right, and yet, most of us take them for granted each and every day!

It isn't until we have a problem with our feet (or lose one or both) that we truly appreciate what they do for us.

I was at my Physical Therapist's office yesterday, and we were discussing the marvelous things that our feet do for us. On any type of terrain, we are held upright, as our feet make the adjustments necessary to keep the rest of our bodies upright and level.

There are tons of little bones in our feet, muscles, tendons, all working together to keep us in balance and moving through our lives.

We abuse our feet. We put them in tight, hot (but oh so cute) shoes. We just expect them to keep going... and going... and going... no matter what we put them through.

Yet, our feet carry us through our days with stability and dependability - far more than we give them credit for.

I am a big believer in showing appreciation to those things that serve us. When was the last time that your feet had a great massage? Or a good soak? Or were just propped up and elevated to give them a little break?

Take a few moments today to appreciate your feet! Your life would not be the same without them!
