Reading her post today, I realized that I need to list my blessings, because as she said,

"I am realizing that the more I list-make, the more my gratitude capacity fills and I become too gratefully overcome." --- c jane

The more we recognize our blessings, the more blessings we recognize. Does that make sense?

Today I am especially grateful for...

  • my husband. He is my best friend, and I love him more than words can say.
  • my children. They teach me patience, and I am a slow learner.
  • my parents. I haven't seen them in over a week, and I miss them. Dinner tonight, Mom?
  • my Bishop. He is an inspired man, who truly loves those he serves.
  • my trials. I know that they are making me a stronger me.
  • the trials of others. It gives me opportunities to serve and think outside myself.
  • my Savior. He knows the pain and heartache we feel.
  • my friends. I have the greatest friends a girl could ask for.
  • my in-laws. They are the most service oriented people I have ever met. And often, I am the recipient of their kindness.
  • exercising. As hard as it is at times, I feel more energy, and so much better about myself.
  • blogging. How else could I shout from the rooftops (per say) about my blessings?

I feel truly blessed!
