So far I've had 10 months of gratitude, but it's been pretty much for my eyes only. Lately, I have been feeling like I should really write a thankful post in this month of gratitude. So here are the top things I'm grateful for:
- Family. Obviously, right?
- Pie. All kinds.
- Employment. Oh, how grateful I am for Clark's employment. Heavy burdens have been lifted, and tears of frustration have been replaced with tears of joy. What a blessing.
- Being Veterans Day, I'm feeling especially thankful for veterans. I wore my poppy all day, and thought of the men and women who have served our country. We went to Cantigny Park tonight, and visited the First Division Military Museum. They had luminaries set up all across a field, and there were soldiers keeping watch, even in the snow. I may have shed a tear or two. God bless our veterans.
- I am thankful for the gospel of Jesus Christ, and perhaps more importantly, for my testimony. My religion is something I hold near and dear to my heart, and I don't think I've brought it up much on my blog. But it must be said that I have a testimony that Jesus Christ is my Savior and Redeemer., and that through his atonement, I can be made whole. I also believe with my whole heart that Christ's church has been restored on the earth, and that the Book of Mormon is true. The power of that book is boundless. By reading from it daily, I come closer to Christ. How blessed we are to have it. If you haven't read it, you should. I'm sure you can even request a free copy from lds.org. Or I can give you a copy. I have a spare.
