a thankful list

Just wanted to stop by at the end of this beautiful Thanksgiving Day and share a few things I'm grateful for. Some are silly, and some are serious. Either way, it's hard to count them all!

1. Daniel
2. Friends that are family and family that are friends
3. Being raised in the Gospel
4. Temple covenants
5. Our apartment
6. Cars
7. Careers that pay for our needs
8. Being able to afford many of our wants
9. Dry shampoo
10. Cable TV (especially the Nat Geo WILD channel)
11. My iPhone, which survived an underwater adventure this week
12. Food. Yummy, yummy food.
13. Boots & leggings weather
14. Holidays
15. Modern medicine
16. Good books

22. Design blogs
23. My college education
24. Prayer, and answers to prayers
25. Laughter
26. Animals
27. Kind strangers
28. The Atonement
29. Parties
30. Shopping
31. Close relationships with parents, siblings, and in-laws
32. My strong, happy, loving marriage

50. Good-smelling candles

...and so much more. Those are just off the top of my head, but 50 seemed like a logical place to start. 

Also, my wonderful mother-in-law recently shared a quote with us. It said: "What if you woke up tomorrow with only the blessings you thanked God for today?" That really made me think of all the things the Lord has provided for me in my life. It also made my nightly prayers a little bit longer!

I hope your Thanksgiving was the happiest one yet!
