thankful...

Posted on: 11.21.2012



With it being Thanksgiving tomorrow, I thought it would be fitting to write a list of all the things I am thankful for in my life. 

Lets start with the frivolous stuff :)

I am thankful for Mac n' Cheese, and how a bowl of it can make a bad day alright :)

I am thankful for the feeling of squishing sand between my toes, and the smell of salt in the air.

I am thankful for hugs, is there really any better feeling then a nice tight hug?

I am thankful for a warm cup of hot chocolate.

I am thankful for sleeping in.

Now on to the things that really matter...

I am grateful that I married an amazing man. Yes, I am about to brag about my love. He is driven, talented, smart and makes me want to be a better person. Together we have grown so much in the last 3 years it honestly amazes me, I can't wait for the rest of our lives together :)

I am greatful for a loving family. I don't know what I did to get blessed with such amazing parents and  fun loving siblings. I also ended up with pretty great in-laws. At the end of the day I consider myself truly blessed and lucky to have a supportive family that loves me and that I can call my best friends.

I am thankful for amazing friends. I feel like I have the best friends anyone could ever ask for. I am lucky to have made these friendships not only back home but in my new home of Utah. It is comforting to know I always have people I can count on wherever I am. I know I would do anything for them and they would do anything for me. I love you all! You all know who you are ;)

I am grateful for my faith. I am comforted constantly in my life through the knowledge that families can be together forever, and that I have a Heavenly Father that loves me and knows me personally. I am thankful for the gift of prayer and the Atonement to be able to progress every day to be the type of person I hope to someday be.

I am thankful for the life I have here in America, that I get to live in a country where I can vote, and speak my mind. I can choose to live whatever religion I want, I can get an education, I can choose who I want to marry, and how I live my life. I am forever in debt to the people who came before me to give me these rights – for there are far too many people who don’t get these opportunities.

I am thankful for my health, I mean what is life without that?

And to end :)...
I am grateful for this little ol’ blog. For the opportunity I have to share my thoughts and love for my family with all of you. I am thankful for the friends I have made through blogging and the happiness and love I have felt from reading about your lives and family. Sharing in our human experiences. Thank you.

I hope you all have a great Thanksgiving with your family &friends!
