The things I'm thankful for

While I have so many things to be thankful for in my life, I'm not always the best at actually acknowledging what they are.

This guy. Having him in my life has been a blessing.

My family. They are my greatest source of strength.

The Gospel. It adds such meaning to my life and allows me to have peace and comfort when life gets overwhelming.
 

Travel. To be inspired by the world around me.
 
Good health. My body is amazing and I'm grateful for all the things it can do. 

True friends. They make the bad moments bearable and the good moments even better.

Adventure. I'm grateful for those things that allow me to push myself.

Laughter. It can change any situation for the better.

Answered prayers. For those small moments that have reminded me that I'm not forgotten and that Heavenly Father has a plan for me.

Safety and security. I am indeed grateful that I have enough for both my needs and my wants and that I don't live in constant fear and worry.

My job. I love having a job that makes me feel valued.

Technology. It brings far away family and friends closer.

Sunshine. Rainstorms. Ice cream.

October Round-Up

Such a glorious October.

HALLOWEEN
Sometimes I love pulling out the girlfriend card. Especially when it involves matching outfits and us getting all dapper. And you can't deny that we don't look very dapper. Now, I won't talk about the fact that Matt is wearing his high school choir outfit...




FOOTBALL
It was the most glorious football weather and I spent it watching BYU play below their ability, come Cougs you're better than that, and Bryce leading Provo High to an undefeated season. Go Bryce Go!



PLAYS
I've loved having play tickets and getting the chance to escape once a month.

GENERAL CONFERENCE
This general conference was a reminder that time indeed marches onward. In high school I learned the order of the 12 apostles and the first presidency. Of those original 15, only 6 remain.

I was especially touched by Meeting the Challenges of Today's World (Elder Hales)Yielding Our Hearts to God (Sister Marriott), Behold Thy Mother (Elder Holland, Turn to Him and Answers Will Come (Elder Martino)
