Take a moment now to appreciate some of the things you might normally take for granted.
Your teeth, in whatever condition they may be.
A hot meal.
The very skull that holds your brain in - crucially important! Often overlooked.
Efforts by Bono on behalf of reducing the third-world debt crisis.
Whatever penis or vagina you may have. Check first to make sure (if you're not sure).
World Peace. Yes, I know it's not complete, and its not perfect, but there really is a shitload of world peace out there if you look around, and hardly anyone ever appreciates it. Why? Because of all these whining perfectionists! It's all all-or-nothing with that crowd. Meanwhile like, 95% of the globe at least is positively lousy with World Peace. Positively caked in the absence of active warfare. Feel free to dispute with me on that 95% statistic, if you wish to look like a FOOL. But you might take a hint first. Hint: the water alone covers about 2/3rds of that surface in question. Not that war won't float, but as history has shown, generally wars are fought over land.
Whichever toe is your personal favorite. Mine is the third toe on your left foot, counting from big to pinkie toe. I love that toe. My absolute favorite toe in the world - this little piggie had roast beef! I guess I do feel bad for poor piggie #4 though. Kind of a sad story, for him.
Your head. Now some of you trouble-makers may claim you have no hot meal to take for granted, or no favorite toe to count, or no teeth in any condition, or dispute me on the World Peace specifics, but I would bet doormats to hedgerows that each and every one of you at least has a HEAD. Yeah? Got you on that one, didn't I!
Damn right I did. Now have some fucking gratitude.
Take all of those things, consider and appreciate as many of them as you can, and maybe string the whole thing together in a tapestry of some kind that maybe says something to you about gratitude. And about the need for that. Because frankly, I think you might not have as much gratitude as you probably should have, without me here to prompt you.
Technically I guess the skull should be included under the head. But I stand by the way I put it - there's different aspects involved! And plenty to be grateful for to go around for each.
