Thankful

Today is Thanksgiving. I have so much to be thankful for.

First of all, I am thankful to have the Gospel in my life. It's hard to remember the person I was prior to joining The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Days Saints. I am thankful for the knowledge and direction it has given my life and now my families life. I was happy before I joined the church but now I know what true happiness and joy is.

I am so thankful for my family. For a long time I thought that I would never get to be a mother but Heavenly Father sent me Blake. We all have so much fun together. I love these boys. My in-laws have been so good to me. They took me right in and treat me as one of their own. I do miss my parents but I know that I will see them again.

I am also thankful for good friends. I am blessed to have a handful that have been there for me through thick and thin. They have become my family.

So, on this day of gratitude, I am so thankful.

You have such a beautiful testimony - thank you for the sweet reminder of what we should perhaps be the most grateful for!

I agree with Kimberly--you always touch my heart when you express your testimony.

I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving.

Beautiful things for which to be thankful! I witnessed my niece's temple sealing today in the Cardston temple. Today, I'm grateful for forever families.
