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!
