gratitude {day 25}

My dad showed me this video toward the begining of the month and it changed the way I was being grateful. It helped me to realize that I should not just be grateful that these wonderful things happen to me daily, but that it is not a coincidence nor random events. Every beautiful blessing that I have to be grateful for comes from the hand of God.

Elder Eyring said... "You might pray and ponder, asking the question, did god send a message that was just for me? Did I see his hand my life?"

So today, on thanksgiving, the last of my gratitude posts, I am grateful that I started and stuck to posting about what I am grateful for each day. I am such a pessimistic person that finding the awesome things about each day can be almost painful. Sometimes it seems that I thrive on the negative. However, over the past few weeks, I have been able to see that I am so blessed. I have NOTHING to complain about. I couldnt ask for a more wonderful husband, my babies are beautiful and healthy, and we have a roof over our heads. I need to loose 50 pounds, but we are healthy, we have food, I have a husband who thinks I am one hot mama and life is beautiful. Seriously life is beautiful, and I have a loving, merciful and giving Father in Heaven to thank for all of that.
