Thankful Thursday!



I need to take this time to STOP and count my blessings!

I am grateful for the simple things in life...
Hot Chocolate
Cool Weather (so I can wear sweaters!)
Sunshine
A Car that works
An Electric Blanket
Fall Scented Candles
A Home
Laughter
Smiles
Make up (hahaha, but SERIOUSLY!)
Lower gas prices!

And, then of course the bigger things!
MY WONDERFUL FAMILY! (ALL of you!)
THE GOSPEL!
MY SCRIPTURES!
MY FRIENDS!
A Free Country
My hubby's good job (so I don't have to work)
Prop 8 Passed!

I could go on and on... but that is a good start FOR NOW....
So, What are you grateful for??? Come on, play! I will be checking your blog!

PS I have to add.... I am VERY thankful that my daddy is still feeling pretty dang good MOST days!!!


Dang, I hate how I look like I have the make up caked on!!!

I am thinking about how wonderful all your efforts were down there. Even though you are all still in adversity.

I am grateful for smiles too. I have really been watching how people react with just a smile and how I react to a warm smile. And there is so much power in our upper and lower lip moving in an upward direction.
