Last Two Day’s Of Thanks…

Well my title says “Last Two Day’s Of Thanks” but I really am sure I could continue through the entire year. I always have so much to be thankful for. So for these last two day’s I’m going to make a list instead of specific day’s of thanks..

I am thankful for:
My amazing husband who works so hard for our family and sacrifices so much for us. I’m thankful that he honors his priesthood and we all are blessed because of it. I’m thankful that he is a wonderful father and his kids absolutely adore him.

My 5 beautiful children, and all the joy that they bring me. The many many things they teach me every day. And how they always watch me to see if I need a hug. And make me laugh almost every day. (Check out the pictures below)

The Gospel of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. The testimony I have that this is the one true church that the atonement of my Savior has indeed saved me and made it possible for my family to be together forever. My testimony of prayer that I have felt in my life daily since Gabe passed away and my prayers that have been answered through Heavenly Fathers earthly angels.

The generosity of others, we’ve been so blessed in our time of need and I do not have words to describe my gratitude for all those people who have helped in so many different ways.

My home, the food on our table, the clothes on our bodies and all our very many things that I’m sure we take for granted every day.

The people who share their experiences with the rest of us so we can grow from what they have learned and we can lean on them when we need it and so we know we are never alone in our trials.

For people to act on the promptings of the spirit and never know why they should, but they do anyway.

For all David and I’s family & friends who give us so much support and love every single day.

We Love all of you..

I’m sure these pictures are very politically incorrect and I really shouldn’t share them, but their imagination’s & silliness blow me away sometimes. To explain, they decided to turn Madison into an Elf. I did yell at them (through a smile & a giggle) for possibly ruining the pants she was wearing but it was very creative.

  1. The family pictures you have posted are great but what stole my heart was seeing the Lightening McQueen in each of them. I read your post the other day about hurting because Gabe only had one ornament and it really tore at my heart but seeing that little McQueen warmed my heart because Gabe is really there. I appreciate you sharing your family with those of us who read and don't even know you!

  2. I'm thankful for you! You are such a wonderful friend. I am so blessed to have you in my life!
