#84 The Bones in Your Body
Today’s is a day that I would call chilling to the bone 🙂 With only -28 this morning I must say I love the cold weather. Too bad I can’t be outside for too long 🙂
Since I said chilling to the the bone how about being grateful for having bones in your body. Think about it what would humans have been and done without this very important commodity in our body?
I must say I am very sorry for not having taken the time to write a blog post in a while, but today was a perfect day for it 🙂 I got a spark of writing into me through frustration about the world and what it is becoming. Sometimes you got to channel frustration and anger in the right way! 🙂 Be positive and help spread a message 🙂 I think in the years coming ahead we will be in for the roller-coaster ride of our life and very important it will be to be very Grateful 🙂
So today I will be speaking about the wonderful thing of evolution called bones 🙂
So why should we be grateful the bones in our body?
- They make us strong.
- If they break they will become stronger.
- The make us do things that no one else can do in the animal kingdom.
- The help us kiss.

- Bones can tell a lot about people and animals leaving 100′-1000000’s of years ago.
So next time you wake up in the morning why don’t you feel your body’s bones and feel how solid and strong they are and say how grateful you are for the incredible amount of bones you have in your body.
Here is a little quick insight into the bones that exist in your body 🙂
List of bones of the human skeleton
A typical adult human skeleton consists of 206 bones. Individuals may have more or fewer bones than this owing to anatomical variations. The most common variations include additional (i.e. supernumerary) cervical ribs or lumbar vertebra. Sesamoid bone number can also vary between individuals. The figure of 206 bones is commonly repeated but must be noted to have some peculiarities in its method of counting. As noted below, the craniofacial bones are counted separately despite the synostoses which occur naturally in the skull. Some reliable sesamoid bones (e.g., pisiform) are counted, while others (e.g., hallux sesamoids) are not. The number of bones changes with age, as multiple ossific nuclei joined by synchondroses fuse into fewer mature bones, a process which typically reaches completion in the third decade of life.

Gratitude in everything we see:
When you see something today. Remember to say how grateful you are for it.
“Nature is one great big wood-chipper. Sooner or later, everything shoots out the other end in a spray of blood, bones and hair.” -Doug Coupland
