I Am Thankful For ...

Taking the time to count our blessings helps put into perspective how much we have to be thankful for. Even in times of trial and sorrow, being thankful can help us see the light at the end of the tunnel and gives us strength to endure.

It's so easy to be thankful for the sunshine on a beautiful day when life is going well and everyone seems to be happy, healthy, and safe. But, we also need to remember to be thankful for the rain and the stormy clouds. After all, if the sky were always blue, eventually we'd forget to look up.

I am so thankful for miracles that happen every day. Little things let us know we have a loving Heavenly Father who is watching over us and is aware of our struggles, pain, fears, and sorrows. I am thankful for a loving and supportive family, both immediate and extended. I am thankful for a hard-working, talented, devoted, (and handsome!) husband who does everything he can to take care of his family. I am thankful for my beautiful children who teach me everyday the importance of service, patience, kindness, and love. I am thankful for wonderful friends and neighbors. I am thankful for my testimony.

Now it's your turn. What are you thankful for?
