Being Thankful

Today is a day to be thankful. I am very thankful for many, many things and blessings I have. Sometimes you just need to sit down and think about it to realize how blessed you truly are.

I am thankful for the church. I am so grateful I know my family will be together forever. I am thankful for the atonement and that I will not be given more than I can handle. Some days I seriously question this, but in the end I do know from how blessed I am, that things all work out.

I am thankful for my wonderful husband. He seems to keep me grounded. When I become overwhelmed with everything that consumes my day with the kids, he makes me laugh. He keeps things funny and never fails to make me smile. He is a great support to me. I am thankful he works hard for our family. I know this past year has been hard on him, but he has dealt with it amazing!

I love and am so thankful to have three wonderful boys. I love them so much and they each bring me so much joy in different ways. I do wish I could make life easier for Trevor and Josh, but I know they are blessed. I learn from them as much as they learn from me and I am so thankful Heavenly Father felt I was good enough to send these special spirits to me.

I am so grateful for family and friends. This past year has been one of the most difficult I have ever faced. I could not have made it through without family and friends. I want everyone to know how much I love them and appreciate all that they have done for me. I probably don't thank them near enough, but nothing they do goes unnoticed. I am grateful for the wonderful friends I have met on blogger and facebook. I have truly got the most amazing people that keep positive comments coming my way and let me know I am doing a great job. Thank you!

And last, I am thankful for all the people involved in Josh's life. He has some amazing therapists and doctors! They care about him personally and do everything they can to help him have the best quality of life. It is truly a blessing to have this in our life. Josh requires a lot of support to keep on going and I am so glad I don't have to wonder if they have his best interest in mind.

I am thankful for medicines, feeding tubes, braces, ect that have helped Josh get to where he is today. I never thought I would actually say that I am thankful for these things that cause such headaches in my life, but I am. Without it, life would be drastically different.

I hope everyone gets to spend time with family and friends on this thanksgiving and reflect on what blessings you have in your life.

Happy Thanksgiving!!!!
