Grateful

Today I have been thinking about some of the things that I am so grateful for.
I wanted to write them down so I can remember this moment in time.
I'm grateful for my husband.  He is the yin to my yang.  he is not perfect.  But neither am I.  We complete each other.
I am grateful for each and every one of my kids.  They are as different as can be but I love them exactly the way they are.
I am grateful for this beautiful Texas weather.  I need sunshine.  It fills my soul with happiness.There is nothing better than a warm Texas day with the sunroof open.  I have had a lot of those lately.
I am grateful for school and for the opportunity to go to graduate school.  I am learning so much.  Some weeks are hard and stressful but I know it is what I am supposed to be doing at this stage of my life and that feels good.
I am grateful for good friends.  I am surrounded by them.  I always have been.  They have my back, they help me, they inspire me.  This year has been filled with opportunities for making new friendships that I will always cherish.   They make me want to be a better person.
I am grateful for the parents that raised me.  I obviously have been missing my dad these last 9 months.  My parents aren't perfect but I turned out pretty okay and I feel like they helped mold me into who I am.  I am grateful that one of the last things I told my Father (at Father's Day) was that he was the best father for me.  I know it meant a lot to him because I found that card in his living room many months later after he passed away.  I am also enjoying my weekly walks with my mom.  I enjoy her company and think of her as a good friend.
I am grateful that my missionary comes home in less than 100 days!
