An Attitude of Gratitude

It's Thanksgiving time! Luckily, we have four more weeks until the actual day of turkey, mashed potatoes and pie. But it's never to early to count our blessings. I have been working at recognizing God's hand in my life and noticing life's miracles and the Lord's tender mercies.

Today, I am THANKFUL for................


These people ROCK! They make my life! Every person in this little group means the world to me. They make me laugh. They make me cry. They make me a better person. They make me laugh. They make me worry. They make me pray. They make me laugh. They make me thankful. They totally entertain me!

Five things I love about them -
Brian -
Loves the Lord
Loves Me
Gives his all to our family
Calm in a crisis
My best friend

Loves the Lord
Always does the right thing
Compassionate and caring
Reasonable and level headed
Fun to be with

Honors his priesthood
Serves without complaint
Deep thinking
Multi talented and creative
So so so funny

Always helpful
Easygoing and happy
Diligent and obedient
Confident and secure
Always willing to hug and cuddle

These guys are everything I am not! Good thing I have them to balance me out. I learn so much more from them than they wil ever learn from me. They teach me through their example. They teach me through their patience. And they teach me through their kind words. "Mom, really, is it necessary to swear?" Thanks Tram! "Umm.........can I help you Mom?" Thanks Garrett!

So to all my boys........who will never see this or read this..........I love you! You are the best!
