What I'm most Grateful for

I am very humbled today for the love I have for my Savior. He has blessed my life so deeply and continues to pour out his love and understanding to me. Through all my trial and tribulations my testimony of the Gospel of Christ has grown deeper and my understanding of the atonement is personal and one of deepest gratitude.

I am blessed with a loving family and amazing children whom I love dearly.

I am blessed with health.

I am blessed with wonderful friends.

I am blessed to be able to live in a free country.

I am blessed with wonderful employment.

I feel I am the person I am today because of everyone who I have been blessed to have in my life. I'm grateful for all the associations that I have. I am so grateful for those who have stood by my during my most trying times, I hope one day to be able to bless the lives of those that are struggling and not stand to judge them but to love them as the Savior did.

Last October our Church Leaders addressed us in conference. One of the talks that stood out to me was given Elder Holland. The talk was addressed Because of your Faith. I remember listening to him express his love and gratitude and being compelled to tears and overcoming emotions. Too often we fail to express our gratitude to those that mean the most and for the things that are truly of value to us. I am overcome with gratitude for all that the Lord has blessed me with. I often struggle to express the way that I feel and to my fault I struggle to express how exactly how I think. It seem my tongue does not cooperate with my thoughts.

Because of my faith I am blessed Because of my family I am blessed. Because of my trials I am blessed.

Just when you thought things were going great... then your little one takes a nose dive off the swings and plants her forehead into the dirt. She will not let me put any medicine on her owie... so therefore it is up to her to put the medicine on. And she does it quit well. I asked her to pose for the camera and these are the two pictures that I got. After she saw the first one that looked quite dreary she then did the second pose that turned out cute. She is really a trooper about the whole experience.
