five gratefuls.

Today, my heart is full and I am grateful for my many blessings.

+ I am grateful for the gospel of Jesus Christ in my life, for the atonement and the miracle of forgiveness, for the knowledge that I am a daughter of God, and the comforting gift of eternal families.

+ I am grateful for the six people I share my home with; my husband Brandon who is my best friend, my four wonderful children who teach me so much, and for Pauline, my newest daughter, who I love with all my heart.

+ I am grateful that my husband has a good job that provides for us, for a warm home, plenty of food, a working car, and clothes to wear. I realize that many are less fortunate and I recognize what a blessing it is to have these things.

+ I am grateful for the opportunity to serve others. Everyday we are given opportunities to reach beyond ourselves and I believe this gives us tremendous perspective.

+ I am grateful for extended family and friends who love and support me and who provide excellent examples of charity.
