Today I can think of several things I have to be thankful for.

I'm thankful for a good friend at church today that noticed when I wasn't quite myself. She asked me how I was, when I said I'm feeling sad for no specific reason she told me it was ok to feel sad and she reminded me that I'm loved and sometimes we just need a day to feel sad. I needed that today it brightened my day in a small way but seemed to take away some of my sadness.

When we came home from Church, I'm thankful we've had a wonderful day of no TV and quiet reading and playing together. I'm thankful our Home Teachers came and brought a wonderful message.

I've been reading Stephanie Nielson's book Heaven Is Here, yesterday and today. As I've read I've thought that although I feel the trial I have of losing my sweet baby is a very difficult trial that I'll have to figure out for the rest of my life I'm thankful that my Heavenly Father gave me a trial that he knows that with his help I can endure. Reading the trial of Stephanie Nielson seems so extremely difficult and inspiring to see how she's overcame so much. Reading about her days that she felt she wouldn't overcome it made me think of how we all have trials we think we won't overcome. Although I have many sad days I know this is my trial for a reason and it will only make me stronger, I am thankful for that.
