My Thanksgiving List

I haven't posted in a while, because I honestly haven't had anything to post about. Micah and I haven't really had the resources to go anywhere or do anything exciting. I decided tonight that my lack of activity is not something to complain about but instead I should look at the positive things in my life. I think that I'll start making a list each week up until Thanksgiving. (Some things may be repeated. :)) I am going to list just a few things that I am truly grateful for... Sorry that this isn't anything exciting to read.

1. My membership in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and therefore my relationship with my Father and Elder Brother.
2. My family- including of course Micah, my immediate, and my extended family. I don't know where I would be without them.
3. My friends- you all know who you are and how much you have helped me through various times in my life.
4. My job- I LOVE teaching and it truly is a job that makes me feel like I accomplishing something and making a difference, however small it may be.
5. My health- even the days that I don't feel well haven't been that bad, at least a nap can mostly take care of my lack of energy.
6. Music-I can honestly say that music has been so inspirational and motivating in my life, it has also made my family as close as we are to each other.
7. Education- there were definitely days that I disliked having to attend class, but I was always happy that I went after it was over. I'm so grateful that I had the opportunity to get an education and a GOOD, QUALITY education.
8. Holidays- times to celebrate throughout the year all sorts of events always makes me so happy.
9. Trials- while I have a million other things to be grateful for I just have to state that I am grateful for the things that have kept me humble, strengthened my relationships with others and my Savior, and simply taught me patience and a deeper love and respect for others.

To all the people that were mentioned in my list I want you to know that I love you all!
