I am grateful for...



















  • laughter - especially the kind of laughter that you can't stop, or children's laughter

  • a sense of humor

  • television - and uplifting programming

  • all things Disney - Disneyland, Disney characters, Disney movies, music from Disney movies....(a little sad we won't be there this week...)

  • holidays

  • reading

  • cheesy LDS fiction (I love Anita Stansfield books!)

  • gas prices going down (it's $1.71 at our local station!)

  • watching my kids learn new things

  • good nights sleep

  • modern medicine - especially simple things like Advil and Tylenol

  • vitamins

  • hopes and dreams

  • sunshine and blue skies

  • puffy clouds - especially ones that look like fun shapes (last week Gabe was certain that the trials from airplanes in the sky were shooting stars - there was no convincing him otherwise!)

  • green grass

  • ranger rides with my boys

  • hugs and kisses

  • soft textures

  • flannel sheets

  • Diet Dr Pepper

  • forgiveness from others, and most importantly from Heavenly Father

  • repentance

  • music of all kinds - rock, classical, country, children's music, church music - but most of all I love to hear my kids sing (I wish they'd do it more - Gabe's not that into it)

  • excitement - that feeling that settles into your whole body and makes your toes start tapping because you're so excited.

  • I'm grateful that we all have different hobbies and talents - isn't it great that there are people who enjoy all different kinds of things in life?

  • hobbies - I'm gratefl for scrapbooking (and just wish I had more opportunties to do it!)

  • ice cream - I've recently been loving peanut butter cup ice creams (Blue Bunny's Peanut Butter Explosion or Dreyers Peanut Butter Cup - YUM!)

  • Choices and variety - even if sometimes there seems to be too many choices.

  • smells of all kinds - especially yummy Scentsy smells (today I tried some free body-spray that came with my deodorant. Gabe came up to me a little later and sniffed me and looked disgusted and said, "Mom - you STINK!" Thanks.)
