(I made these tags and have them displayed in my home. I really really love them)

Right now I am in the calm before the storm. I am home alone, there is beautiful music playing, my kitchen is clean and I'm feeling the glow of a good weekend, where everyone got along and the house didn't get too destroyed. Tomorrow (and even a bit later tonight) all chaos is going to break loose. We are trying to get out of town for Thanksgiving and there is A LOT to do before then. But as long as I've got a few moments of serenity I'm going to record some of the things that help me feel blessed.

(in no particular order)
1. Health
2. The gospel of Jesus Christ
3. A beautiful family
4. Many friends that are continually supportive and such a great example to me and my family.
5. Abilities and Talents
6. My Patriarchal Blessing
7. My dogs
8. An ambitious husband that takes such good care of me
9. Extended family that are AWESOME! (really, there's no other way to describe it)
10. A beautiful home in a beautiful area
11. I'm able to get to the beach pretty much whenever I want
12. Medical advances
13. Technology that saves time, energy and living space
14. Faithful Parents
15. The best ward this side of Kolob
16. Vision, hearing, sense of smell and touch
17. Love of running (who would have thought)
18. Creativity
19. Color
20. Warm Jammies on a cold night
21. The Mormon Tabernacle Choir
22. Brad has a job
23. The Book of Mormon
24. A cheerful disposition
25. Apple products
26. A dishwasher, a washer and dryer, a double oven, a telephone
27. Good schools and teachers
28. Indoor Plumbing (even though our kitchen sink currently has a leak, and I have to clean the bathrooms way too often)
29. Good books and my ability to read
30. My Swagger Wagon
31. The Gift of the Holy Ghost
32. Enough (food, shelter, clothing etc.)
33. Humor
34. Subway
35. Tender Mercies

Thanks for the reminder that we must be grateful. It's easy to loose track of the many things we have that make our life wonderful! I am grateful for friends like you!
