Gratitude

yesterday (Sunday) was our Stake conference and our Stake Presidency got reorganized! As much as I love the old presidency, I am excited about the new one too!! But I was overwhelmed with a sense of gratitude for all the things our old presidency has done for our stake these past 10 or 11 years. As I got thinking about gratitude, so many little things popped into my head!
Here are a few of them:

A mom who lets me have her freshly ground whole wheat to make waffles... and then comes over and eats them with me!

A sweet husband who takes awfully ugly pictures with me and laughs with me til we cry. And he lets me win at trivial pursuit :) we're nerdy I know

Hearing about friends' adventures and being able to live one of my own

The scriptures!!! This one should go on the top. I just re-energized by the scriptures and I love them so much!

Prayer

Our Mac... the best!

The music on Emily Peterson's blog. I always smile! I love you girl!!

An awesome family of in-laws who make me laugh and whom I love!

Having a body that can walk and run (sometimes...) hahah!

My family!

Anyone who reads my blog and leaves comments! I don't know why it makes my day but it does.

My husband... again!!

I love my life and am grateful for the gospel. It is my life and it has changed my life!!

Loves,
Em

I think each of us need to stop and really ponder on what we are thankful for. We are all truly blessed.
