A taste of FAITH, a touch of LAUGHTER.
An Attitude of Gratitude, Day 9
December 9, 2012
Today I am thankful for WATER!
There was a time when I did not really appreciate water. I hardly ever drank it. I heard about the many benefits and saw people with their water bottles, but there were other more interesting things to drink, like tea, coffee, juice and pop! So I did not have much time for water.
One time on the phone, discussing my then current health situation, which was not good, my brother told me about water, and then another close friend told me the same thing. I gave it a bit of a try but I was lucky to get in a couple of glasses in a day.
Much later, I registered in a health course where we had to achieve certain goals, one of which was to drink at least 8 x 8 oz glasses of water per day! Impossible, I thought! I rarely reached that goal in the eight weeks that followed, though the situation definitely improved
However, today I can say I have FINALLY learned to appreciate water and to drink my quota of water daily. I don’t have time to drink much of anything else, which is likely a good thing, because the drinks I used to have were generally much too liberally laced with sugar.
Water is FREE……all you need is a good filter to enjoy it. Getting my daily quota has helped me to shed many pounds of extra weight, which is a bonus. Best of all, I enjoy drinking it!
Water, God’s juice……. 😉
