I'm a big believer in the power of gratitude. When I focus on those things for which I am grateful it is so much easier to be happy and positive than when I forget those things. At various times in my life, I have made lists or kept records (journals) of things for which I am grateful. Right now, Phil and I have a family gratitude book. It is fun to write in it and it is fun to read through it.
Here are some of the things for which I am grateful:
- My patient, kind husband who has great faith.
- The power of the priesthood in my home and the peace and hope that come from receiving priesthood blessings.
- My Toyota Matrix (I'll be even more grateful in December when we are done making payments).
- My darling daughter who smiles - even when she's crying - and who gives the best hugs.
