I am so blessed!
After many instances these past couple of weeks, and in the spirit of Thanksgiving, I thought it would be appropriate to talk about the many blessings in my life. I truly am so blessed.
First and for most I am so thankful for my wonderful family! They are truly some of my best friends. I mean who else can you make random videos with and crack up EVERY time you watch them, create the best inside jokes with, or just completely be yourself around and have the best time doing it. All of these things make me so thankful for my family. We have endless stories of doing completely random and silly things, yet they are so funny to us every time we talk about them. For example, on Sunday night I went over to my brother and sister-in-law's (Kenny and Sarah) house because my youngest brother, Connor, was spending the night there and needed someone to drop him off. Of course I couldn't just drop him off and leave. So I stayed for a couple hours and in that time we had many many laughs and good times. Some of which included Connor dancing around the apartment, wearing my mom's shirt, and singing, "If you like it, let me put a ring on it." Also, playing a game of Hungry Hungry Hippos, where Kenny and Connor were the hippos.....literally. Sarah and I smacked their backs while they picked up the balls with their mouths.....just like the game goes. I am so blessed to have a family that I can have these fun times with and that are always there for me! It is one of the most wonderful things anyone could ask for!
Along with that, I am so thankful for the Church and my branch! I am so grateful to have the gospel in my life. It truly is one of the greatest blessings I have! It is one of the only constants I have in my life and I am so thankful for that! My knowledge of the gospel has helped me endured many things with a lot greater ease! Of course, I am thankful for my single's branch as well. It is exactly where I need to be right now. I love being able to serve in the relief society! I am also thankful for everyone in my branch, and of course my friends that aren't in my branch. I am so blessed to have great friends. They are so fun to be around and are such great examples to me! I love it!
Anyways, these are just a few of the many things I am thankful for! I could spend days and days writing about everything I am thankful for. I truly am blessed and see it more and more everyday! I guess just to sum it all up I am thankful for my life and everything that happens in it! I am truly happy, which is one of the greatest things I could ask for.
I am so blessed!!
Happy Thanksgiving everyone!!!!
