Gratitude


I love the quote, "Gratitude turns what we have into enough."
But I have found that in my life, gratitude turns what I have into much more!


Family * Home * Jesus * Church * Beautiful World * Friends
Siblings * Parents * Cars * Food * Water * Internet * Job
Books * School * Electricity * Clothing * Shoes * Indoor Plumbing
Sunshine * Rain * Beach * Mountains * Clouds * Sunsets
Body * Health Insurance * Technology * Temples

Gratitude is the reason I don't feel bitter about my diagnosis.
Several months ago, as I began to feel that a new trial was coming,
I prayed to my Heavenly Father that me would keep my children safe.
I prayed that the burden would be placed on me instead.
I feel that my prayer was answered, and I am grateful.

When my life feels overwhelming, and I feel like I have been dealt an unfair blow,
I start thinking about all the ways it could be worse, 
and all the people who are enduring harder things than me!

So when I was listening to counsel from our church leaders this morning, 
I found the address on gratitude to be especially applicable to me right now 
and I found so many great quotes that I wanted to share with you!

This one was my favorite.
Probably because of the rainbow.
I hope you enjoy it as much as me.
If you like it, feel free to pin it or print it as an 8x10 for your own home!

Indoor plumbing. Thank goodness. I don't even want to leave my warm bed to visit the bathroom at 3am.

Love you!
