Thanks day


We were asked on Sunday to go around the room in relief society and say one thing we are thankful for. I was trying to think of something other than the typical family answer. These last few months have made me realize something that I have thankful for though. I am grateful that I can have children. This pregnancy wasn't planned, and took a while for me to get excited but eventually it hit me, that some people can't even have children or have such a hard time getting pregnant and I should be so grateful I can have them. So I am so, so thankful for that.

I am definitely also thankful for my family. My husband, and girls. They are amazing.

(I love how Jayci and Presley are looking at each other in this picture)

I am also grateful for my extended family. When you get older they mean everything. I'm grateful for the relationship I have with sisters and sister in laws. I can't wait to grow up and have a big family of kids, and eventually grand kids.

I'm grateful that my husband can have a good job.

We live in a warm house.

The gospel.

and so much more. These are the main things. But lately, i'm so grateful for this guy. He has saved me lately.

that's all :)
