You and I are a precious miracle. Simply to be alive, right now, breathing, in and out...for this, the true warrior is grateful. Consider these miraculous facts:
*Your heart is a fantastic pump that beats about 100,000 times every 24 hrs, pumping approximately 5,000 gallons of blood per day through 60,000 miles of blood vessels. Three million red blood cells are created every second of the day to replenish this blood. Your heart will beat about 3 billion times over your life without a break. Not one minute of rest or recovery.
*Every second, 100,000 chemical reactions take place in every cell of your body. Now, multiply 100,000 chemical reactions by the 70-100 trillion cells that make up your body. This mind-boggling number is the number of chemical reactions that take place inside of you every second.
*The DNA in the nucleus of one human cell is a thread that measures two yards by ten atoms.. a billion times longer than it is wide. Two yards of this DNA packs into each cell by coiling itself endlessly on itself. If there are 70 trillion cells in your body, unwound, that string could stretch to the sun and back 400 times.
You and I are lucky to be alive right now. If we can do all of this without even trying, just think of what we are capable of.
You are a miracle.
