Thanksgiving

On Facebook everyone seems to be writing daily thankful posts. I don’t post everyday so I thought I might just do one blog post about a bunch of things that I am thankful for in my life. I am so thankful for:My beautiful children
My amazing husband who can still manage to put up with me
A Father in Heaven who loves me and knows what is best for me
I am so grateful to be a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. It keeps my life in perspective.
I am so thankful for a mother who raised us for a majority of my life as a single mother after my awesome dad died.
Good friends who understand I am even if I can’t seem to be that person all the time

Those are just a few of the things I am grateful for everyday. I know that many of you think we are living this great adventure right now, which we are, but with any great adventure there are struggles. So today I will add to my list some things I am grateful for in regards to having just moved to a foreign country.

I love all the beautiful flowers that I can buy for super cheap. It might be my favorite thing about living here.
I am thankful for new friends who understand the day to day struggles of living so far from home and our of your comfort zone.
I love all the obvious history and architecture that is all around me.
I really love the slower paced life we have gotten here.
I really appreciate a friend who runs to the grocery store to grab a few things for us because we are stuck in traffic and the store closes at 9pm until Monday.

I know that my life is blessed and despite all the daily trials I know without a doubt that my Savior, Jesus Christ, loves me and is watching out for me. As we head into this Christmas season may we all turn from daily thanks to daily Christlike acts to help us all remember what this time of year is all about.

We spent Thanksgiving in Paris at Disneyland as a family. Our version of Thanksgiving dinner this year was turkey legs and fries. Much less cleaning up for me 😉
