Unusual Things to Be Thankful For

It’s Thanksgiving Day in America. Here are
some things to add as you count your blessings.


Sad? Depressed? Angry? Indifferent? Bored? Lonely? Fearful? Worried? Anxious? Or just at a loss for things to be thankful for? From our archives, you can thank your Maker for these blessings.

You passed through a well-designed birth canal when you were born. (17 Nov 2021)

206 bones came together just right when you were born. (17 Oct 2021)

PIWI complexes prevented transposable elements from corrupting your germline. (6 Oct 2021)

God made you able to walk efficiently without having to think about it. (22 Sept 2021)

You can taste 100,000 flavors, and some of us can taste umami, too. (15 Sept 2021)

Your zygote put on a fireworks show when you were conceived. (1 Sept 2020)

Your kinetochores worked beautifully and flawlessly. (4 Aug 2021)

The egg cell that became you had a magic carpet ride. (2 July 2021)

Your eyes have a well-designed support system. (28 June 2021)

God gave you crystal jewels in your mouth that are normally strong and resist fracture (17 June 2021)

These are all just from this year. Under the “Human Body” category, we have more than 20 years’ worth of similar findings, and there are more under Cell Biology, Genetics, Mind & Brain and Health to consider. Even with all the troubles in the world, we have far more reasons than needed to be thankful this season. Happy Thanksgiving from CEH!

Rejoice in God’s care for you as you watch this treat from Illustra Media.
