The holiday season has come upon me so quickly i feel like i have barely enough time to think! But i thought i would give myself a few moments to think about all the things i am grateful for.
I will be in St George for Thanksgiving, so i will not have the opportunity to post on thursday, so i thought i would take the time today.
First and foremost i am so grateful for my family... My WONDERFUL, AMAZING, LOVING, HARDWORKING (etc...etc...) husband! He is truly the man of my dreams and he proves it every day! He never ceases to put a smile on my face or a little kiss on my cheek. He constantly tells and shows me how much he loves me and he is always so appreciative of things, big or small, that i do for him. Everyday i thank my Heavenly Father for sending him to me. I am the luckiest girl in the world! And as for my darling little girl... well just seeing a little smirk on her face every morning makes me grateful for the plan our Heavenly Father made for us. I am so grateful to be a mother! It is the best thing that has ever happened to me, i am honored that i could be a mommy to a sweet, gorgeous little spirit (and hopefully a few more sometime in the future). She brings me such joy and humility, i cannot explain in words.
Secondly i am grateful for my parents and my in-laws. I could not have asked for anything better in either. Their love and support in everything amazes me daily. What what i do or who would i be without them? They truly bless my life each and everyday! Thank you mom, dad, kathie, and ron! I love you!!!
I am so grateful for the gospel in my life, the wonderful new ward i am in, how loving and friendly they all are. I am so grateful for my health and the health of my family. I am so grateful for technology and for the way that i can connect with all of you by the touch of a couple buttons. I am so grateful for the upcoming holidays and for service opportunities. I am so grateful for friends and other family members who make me smile or laugh and give me good company. I am so grateful for cameras, toys, food, candy, books, beds, showers, cars, computers, sewing machines, pretty jewelry, funny e-mails, conference talks, strangers who smile at you, all all the other simple yet small things in my life! I am so grateful that i could take a few minutes and think about all of this... but now my minutes are up and a little girl is slightly crying for her mommy get her out of the crib... love you all and i hope you have a HAPPY THANKSGIVING!

P.S. please send me your addresses so i can be sure you get a Christmas card...
