Filled with bounty!

I know that it has been a while since I have last posted. I have thought many a times that I needed to post today, and still have yet to do so, until now. I finally a small amount of time to put towards the computer for a little bit. So I thought since this week it is Thanksgiving that I would write a brief summary of the 10 things that I am most grateful for this year. (That way I don't go to long... hopefully.) (Not in any particular order)

#1 I am thankful for my husband. He has been there to support me and have confidence in me the last few weeks where I have been stretched outside of my comfort zone. And yet he has always known that I could do it so Thank you Mat!

#2 I am thankful for my boys. Although on some days they are a challenge and a stress, they do bring a smile to my face and always find some way to make me laugh and just feel so cozy and loved inside.

#3 I am thankful for my family. They are always there to support me and strengthen me in times of great need and even when I don't feel loved, I know my family is there for a shoulder to cry on.

#4 I am thankful for my mom. She has always been there to give advice and strength. Even when there are times I get frustrated she is there to reassure me that it will be okay.

#5 I am thankful for dear friends. Yes, all of you have a special place in my heart and have been there when I have needed you. You listen to me and can bring a smile to my face and we always have fun. Thank you!!!!

#6 I am thankful for the gospel. I would be so lost without the guidance of the gospel and the great opportunities for me to grow personally and most importantly spiritually.

#7 I am thankful for my testimony of the church and the doctrines that are taught. Although I do not share my testimony as often I am thankful for the Spirit that testifies to me so often of the truths and blessings of the church.

#8 I am thankful for the Mat's job and the help that it has given our family. Although we are still not in a place of our own, we know that Mat still has a job and opportunities to grow and progress there.

#9 I am thankful for the beauty of the outdoors. I love to just play outside with my boys and enjoy all that my Father in Heaven has provided for us. I love living so close to the canyon and be able to see the changes of each season and have the chance to go up the canyon whenever I want to. It's wonderful!

#10 Most importantly I am thankful for my Savior. He has always been there to listen, support, strengthen and forgive me of so many things. He loves me no matter what.

Thanks for letting me tell you some of the many things that I am thankful for this year. Most are the obvious ones but I don't think they need to be surpassed. Love you all and hope that you have a great and safe Thanksgiving weekend.



I'm guessing you might mean Heritage Makers in #1 when you say you've been "stretched out of your comfort zone" :), I know how you feel:), my hubby is my strength in the business, without him I would not be where I am now with it! I started 3 years ago and was way uncomfortable with what I had to do to get anywhere in the company, now I'm great, it has brought out a new side of me :). Keep going, you'll be great!
