Having Two Legs

Ok, one more:

“When we were children we were grateful to those who filled our stockings at Christmas time. Why are we not grateful to God for filling our stockings with legs?”—G. K. Chesterton

Chesterton makes something of the same point from a different angle in his short novel Manalive, and now you know where the name of this blog comes from.

Thanks Toby. Actually I always wondered. The closest I came was to guess it had something to do with a guy being humble enough to admit he like every other guy: two legs putting on pants one leg at a time.

I appreciate the theme of gratefulness.
