I'm playing catch-up again, but at least I'm doing it, right?
I'm grateful for:
4- My husband who tries to do so much for us
5- Our extended families who love and support us
6- Jer's parents, without them, I wouldn't have him
7- My parents, they love me and teach me and brought me up to know right and wrong
8- Our warm house, with warm blankets
9- My intuition
10- My sense of smell, I love the smell of my freshly washed baby
11- My sense of sight, especially when I get a new prescription and new glasses!
12- My sense of touch, I love being able to feel Ella's soft skin and hold her little hands
13- My sense of hearing, Ella's little voice is the sweetest thing I get to hear
14- My sense of taste, chocolate is still one of the best things I can put in my mouth and just enjoy
15- Our employment, even though Jer's isn't the best, at least he has a job. And even though I wish so badly I didn't have to work, at least I get to do it from home so I can be with Ella
16- My soft, cozy bed. I wish I could spend more time curled up on it
17- Friends who keep in touch and care
18- All our nieces and nephews, who are so sweet and loving with Ella (aka Ella Bella)
19- Electronics, although they can be a huge distraction, they also are a major help with SO many things!
That's all for now, I'll probably be catching up again soon.

Thanks-Giving 2&3

So I missed yesterday, so far I'm not doing so well with making sure to do this every day. Oh well, I'm making up for it now.

I'm thankful for temples and for all the awesome things we can do in them. I'm thankful to have the blessing of being able to be with my family forever, and to help those who have gone on before be blessed as well.

I'm also thankful for the trials we go through. I NEVER thought I'd say that, and, honestly, sometimes I'm really not that grateful for them. Even though they majorly suck while you're going through them, I'm grateful for the knowledge and strength we can get from them.

Thanks-Giving 1

I have other friends doing this, so I thought I'd steal the idea. I'm going to blog something I'm thankful for every day this month (or at least try to).
Today I'm thankful for prayer and the comfort it brings us. How amazing to be able to speak to our Heavenly Father whenever we need to, about whatever we need. It's one of the only times I can talk without feeling like I'm saying something stupid or being dumb, and I always feel less alone when I pray.
