The Big Green Parenting Experiment

raising a healthy family in a toxic world

day 9: 30 days of thanks

on November 9, 2012

Good health.

I am super thankful that my family and I are healthy. I am truly thankful for this. Every day we read horror stories of children battling rare diseases and statistics of people who have lost their battles. It is completely heartbreaking. There is so much illness and suffering today and I am so thankful that we have our health.
This is one of the many reasons that we are so committed to awareness of what we put into our bodies. Trying to focus on a clean, organic diet helps to limit the amount of harmful chemicals, hormones and pesticides that we ingest. Many of these chemicals are known to harshly and negatively impact the body and immune system, while others still have yet to be tested. Fear of the unknown is enough for me to avoid them!
It’s so important for all of us to do our best to care for our health and bodies. Even if we can’t control our genetics, we can help steer them in a more positive direction. Just remember how lucky you are every day for your health. You only get one chance at this. Take care of yourself.
I vow to always appreciate and be thankful for my health and the health of my family. I will do whatever it takes to protect that and to never take it for granted.
So here’s to our health!
