The Divine Gift of Gratitude

That's what our lesson in Relief Society was on today... and  I am so grateful that I was there to hear it (even though I was wishing all through Sacrament Meeting that the snowstorm would propel the Bishop towards canceling the second and third hours).
Today I am grateful for
~a husband who wakes up whistling happy tunes
~the cloud I'm still floating on after talking to our missionary yesterday
~dental floss
~a raging blizzard outside our window
~loud, rowdy, sometimes rude and HAPPY children
~a clean kitchen
~enough toilet paper to last a few more days
~Christmas cards
~chocolate-covered cinnamon bears
~no seminary for another week
~time to sit and think
~knowing there's always so much to do;  boredom will never be my nemesis
~The Book of Mormon
~eight hours in bed.
And with that thought, I bid you good-night--may waves of gratitude flow through your dreams.

Gratitude is my FAVORITE word. I have so much to be thankful for. :) YOU are on the top of my list! xo

PS: My word verification was RABILLA. I'm wondering if that's a cross between a rabbit and gorilla. Hmmm....

I'm totally there with you on many things on your list, especially chocolate covered cinnamon bears. Not the eight hours of sleep, though. I don't remember that.

thankful for no seminary! I'll have you know I miss my little heathens. Someday they are going to respectable saints until then ... one should not be grateful for no seminary.
