Thanksgiving is (almost) here!
I am ready to eat. But more importantly, I have so much to be thankful for. I won't bore you with the entire list, but I will say that I am thankful to be a mother and a wife and to have an AMAZING family that gives me so much support and love.
I am thankful for all the men and women who have left their families and their comfortable homes to serve as missionaries and spread the gospel of Jesus Christ all over the world, and to those who are also away serving in our military and keeping us safe. We are writing letters to missionaries tonight for the youth activity at church. If you want to say thank you to our troops, there is a cool website called Let's Say Thanks where you can send a post card to military personnel stationed overseas. It takes about two minutes, and you don't have to give them any personal information like your email or anything. It's a small gesture, but I'm sure it will make someone's day.
I am grateful for this time of year when we are reminded to really focus not on the problems and challenges that we all face daily, but on the things we have been given. I feel so blessed to have the life that I do and I hope I can remember that every day.
