I am Grateful for 21......22......23.....24.......25

I am grateful for friends who don't accuse, just love and laugh and cry with you when you need it, when life feels like a freight train has hit you going 100 miles per hr.  Friends that will talk on the phone with you for hours about every random thing that you both can think of to keep the conversation off of what you don't want to really talk about

A warm cozy fireplace and warm fuzzy blankets to keep me warm and cozy

Christmas carols that bring tears to your eyes.  Christmas music has a spot in my heart that will never go away.

Inspired leaders who think they know what I need at this moment in my life, even if it is not really what I need in my life, nice that they try to get me to see it in a different light and are trying to help me out

Other people who struggle and are not afraid to say that they are struggling and want to help everyone that is struggling.  I hate to admit things are not going as planned, but I know that life it exactly how and what and why because I know I am a Child of God, and he know exactly why I am going through what I am going through.  Nice to know that he is always there, no matter what, where, when, how etc.......

I am Thankful for 17....18....19....20

I am determined to finish this so today I am thankful for

#17 I am thankful for warm socks straight from the dryer that seem to make my ever cold feet warm for a few minutes.

#18  I am thankful for hands that lift and words that humble and seemingly small and simple things that make my life so much happier and so very much more inspired. 

#19 I am thankful for Christmas trees and light and decorations that allow me to take my mind off of the things that are pulling my life off of course.  I love Christmas it makes me happy even when I seem to struggle against a load I can not pull.

#20  I am thankful for the tender mercies I have received from the Lord today, I have finally understood a part of my patriatical blessing that has always thrown me for a loop.  President Christensen talked about the pre-mortal life today in prayer meeting, it was like Heavenly Father was talking right at me, I can't explain how overcome I was afterwards it took me several minutes to get myself back to normal.  I can't give enough thanks for it......Some how President Christensen's words have pierced my heart and tears run down my face even now as I write this......The Lord know me, he must know me, and what I need right now it is him right near to lean on for support as I try to make it through what I am attempting to make it through right this minute.....

Stay tuned, I will finish this!
