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:

  1. My patient, kind husband who has great faith.
  2. Rain!
  3. The power of the priesthood in my home and the peace and hope that come from receiving priesthood blessings.
  4. My Toyota Matrix (I'll be even more grateful in December when we are done making payments).
  5. My darling daughter who smiles - even when she's crying - and who gives the best hugs.
