Thankful....

This past week I had an experience that has left me feeling extremely grateful for Life in general and all of my blessings. (Like Michelle who did a similar post, I don't want to sound like a brag blog so if you want you can skip this post) But with Thanksgiving just around the corner I just wanted to take a minute to share all that I am grateful for.
I am so grateful for life! For the opportunity to live and have amazing experiences. For the daily nitty gritty, and for the extremely wonderful and trying times.
I am grateful for a wonderful family!
I am grateful for wonderful friends!
I am grateful for people who I know are suppose to be in my life to teach me things and to touch me with their wonderful spirits, even if it is only for a short time.
I am grateful for my health, my families health and my friends health.
I am grateful for the knowledge of a Heavenly Father and the comfort that gives me.
I am grateful for drama! The title of drama queen that my friends gave me in high school seems to have followed me in my adult life and I am so thankful! I have learned so much from the drama and the trials and I would never give any of it back. Never! I am who I am today because of these experiences and they have made me stronger and more grateful.
I am grateful to have no regrets.
I am grateful for the beautiful world around me.
I am grateful for being crazy busy!
I am grateful for two jobs in this economy.
I am grateful to help raise two kids.
I am grateful for the opportunity to finish my education. I have always wanted to finish, and I am almost there! I have loved learning so much this time around.
I am grateful for a wonderful home.
I am grateful for Cubbie ; )
I am grateful for an energetic, loving, funny, trusting, supportive and wonderful husband who loves me for me. Who supports my decisions and loves all of my quirkiness. Who is grateful and supportive during my trials and is there to celebrate the good times. Who honors his priesthood and makes me want to be a better person everyday.
I am so grateful for everyone who has touched my life and let me be apart of theirs. I love you all so much.
