In light of this season, I'm going to say 10 things that I'm thankful for...
1. The gospel and especially my knowledge and understanding of the Atonement. It's a great thing that I can keep learning about it and applying it in my life.
2. My Temple Marriage, at many times I have relied on the covenants that the Lord, Eric and I made when we were sealed. Especially when I'm really struggling or having one of those moments, I'm SOOO grateful for my temple marriage.
3. My husband, pal, friend, sweetheart, Eric, who loves me now matter what bumps I have or where I have them and puts up with all kinds of crafts, scrapbook pages, vinyl and me wanting to coach every sport.
4. My parent's temple marriage and Eric's parent's temple marriage. They are great examples of love and perservance.
5. My siblings being married in the temple. Both Eric's bros and sis and mine. It puts us on common ground. And Sara gets to have Kollin forever.
6. My children, Each is an incredible miracle in our lives. I know that we aren't the "conventional" Mormon family as we have an interesting and LONG story to each of our children coming into our home and that we are the "right" size but I love each of them.
7. My country. I feel so blessed to be able to VOTE! However, I might have to become involved in politics to change some of our state's laws. I love that I can go where ever I want to go and not have to worry about being bombed or shot.
8. Those troops who are or who have fought for these freedoms. Also their families. They sacrifice so much for me.
9. My car!! I drive alot!! And for the most part, it starts and moves and gets me where I want to be. There are some complaints like, AC/heater, doors open if they feel like it, the driver's seat can't be moved, windshield wipers do their own thing too. But for the most part, it starts and runs!
10. My house. So grateful that I can run the AC or the heater. That I have a nice place to lay my head at night.
I have many more tender mercies. But this post could go on forever. So I'll stop for now.
