With Thanksgiving coming up, and since the commercial world seems to treat Thanksgiving as a little blip between Halloween and Christmas, I want to post something that I'm grateful for every day this month. I'll start with my biggest blessing; my dear family. Here's a picture of my crazy kids that was taken back in June. I need to get them all together again and take some current photos! I love my kids so much, and I can't imagine life without them. They are such a joy in our lives, and despite the day-to-day struggles that inevitably pop up, they are an infinite source of fulfillment and happiness. Eliza, Hyrum, and Hazel, I'm so grateful our Heavenly Father has sent you to our family. We love you!
Of course, I'm also very grateful for my husband Steve. Thanks, honey, for being such a terrific father and husband - we all love you very much! Thanks for being such a hard worker to provide for our family, and for all you do to help our household function smoothly...and thanks for putting up with me all these years! Okay, I better stop now before you get queasy from all the mushy talk.
Happy month of November to you! I hope we can all work on counting our blessings a little more in the days to come.
