I'm Thankful for...

I'm most thankful for my family. Not just my little family, but my fantastic extended family as well. I don't know what I would do without my husband, and kids, and parents, and in-laws and everyone else that is such a wonderful part of my life.

I'm also thankful for my friends. Having friends that support me and understand me and help me whenever I need them is a huge comfort to me.

I'm always thankful for my kids who love me unconditionally, no matter how many times I fail to be a perfect mother. Their constant affection makes it possible for me to get through the hard toddler times and realize that I have the best job in the entire world.

I'm thankful for my house where we can live and always be safe and comfortable.

I'm eternally thankful for my husband. He has changed my life for the better since the day I met him. I would not be able to do all I do without his love and support and I cannot imagine what my life would be like without him. He works so hard for us and is a fantastic husband and father, I couldn't ask for anything more.

I'm thankful for my choir, The Sterling Singers, and the opportunity I have to sing with them and feel the tangible spirit that is with us when we are singing praises to the Lord. I love having music in my life and it helps me fill my lamp a little bit more every week.

I'm grateful for my membership in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, and my knowledge of the Lord's plan for us. I don't think I could deal with the little trials in life, let alone the big ones without the knowledge the church has given me. Knowing that I will have my family forever and that the Lord will always hear and answer my prayers in one of my greatest comforts in life.

Of course, there are endlessly more things I am grateful for. I am so blessed. I'm grateful for this day that allows me to reflect and see how the blessings are overflowing in my life. I hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving!
