Giving Thanks

Since we just had Thanksgiving I thought I would write about all the things I am thankful for. First off we have been sick, so I am thankful for health. They say you don't appreciate it until you don't have it anymore, that is so true! I am thankful for a wonderful husband. He treats me so well and loves me despite my shortcomings. I am thankful for my 4 children. Each one is unique and so smart and fun to be around. I am thankful for temples. I am so glad we can go to the house of the Lord and feel the peace that exists inside and be in the only place on earth where we are free from Satan's influence. I am thankful for good food. As a Bentley/Richardson, I never seem to get full, which can be a good thing and a bad thing! I am thankful for our prophet. Thomas S. Monson has been a General Authority for a long time and it has been wonderful to see him ordained as our prophet. I am thankful for the Atonement. Our Savior, Jesus Christ, willingly died so that I can repent and have a chance to make it back to heaven! That means so much to me! I know I could go on and on but I will just stop here. Thanks for reading it!
