Grateful today.

I'm feeling a lot of gratitude today for my many blessings.

I am so grateful to live in a wonderful home, and feeling fortunate to have purchased it when we did at nearly the lowest of low. It may not be a grand house and it may not be decorated but I have a beautiful home with nice things filled with a wonderful spirit of love and happiness.

I am grateful to have a car that is reliable and that can take us places COMFORTABLY because we travel between Utah and California so frequently.

I am grateful for Adam's job that is secure. The world will always need teachers so we are set (Until the Apocalypse;)

I am grateful to live in Las Vegas, surrounded by wonderful people, very strong women that I have grown to love who are raising good children who can be a good example to my child. People who take care of me and love me and want me to hang around :)

I am grateful for my membership in the church. Not just because I am able to know the gospel of Jesus Christ, to feel the spirit and to feel His love, but also because of the JOY it brings to feel secure in friendship--united with those around me and to feel the security that the gospel brings.

I am grateful for a HEALTHY HAPPY WONDERFUL baby girl who has brought me more joy than I ever thought I could experience in this lifetime. I'm grateful to be her mommy and to be able to teacher her and guide her through life.

Most especially I am grateful for a loving, helpful, kind husband who not only provides for our families financial needs but is also PRESENT in our home and family, who loves me for who knows why and who loves and cares for every need of our daughter. I'm also lucky to have a husband who is always serving me, always willing to hop up and help me out with whatever needs to get done and does so without complaint. I love him.

In case you were wondering what caused this spontaneous expression of gratitude I was recently "on lifes billows feeling tempest tossed...discouraged thinking all was lost" as I stood in line for 3.5 hours at the DMV so I counted my blessings ;)

Standing around for 3.5 hours would give you time to reflect.
