This is one of my favorite times of the year. I love taking time to reflect on our blessings and give thanks to those we love. We have so much to be grateful for. Here are a few:
  • T- Time & Togetherness(We're thankful for our time on earth and being together)
  • H- House & Health (We're happy to have a nice roof over our head and a place to sleep and to stay safe and warm.)
  • A- An education (Pat is halfway done with nursing school and it couldn't have been a better time for him to go. His education will provide for us for years to come. Thanks for your hard work Pat!)
  • N- Our Nation (We are grateful to live in this great country and to have so many freedoms.)
  • K- Kindness (This is such an important attribute and those around us display it daily. We live in a great neighborhood and associate with kind people! It makes us want to be kind.)
  • F- Family & Friends (We are blessed to have most of our family close by, and those that are far away, we connect with on a regular basis. We love our families.And we're blessed with great friends who keep us laughing.)
  • U- JesUs Christ (We have a testimony of the Savior and His restored gospel. I am grateful daily it's influence in our lives.)
  • L- Love (We feel constant love from our familes, friends and mostly from the Savior.)

We are busy getting things ready for the big day. It's my first time hosting Thanksgiving at my house, so any tips would be greatly appreciated. I have to cook the turkey! YIKES. I'm excited and thankful. Ooh, I just can't wait for that pumpkin pie! Happy Thanksgiving and count your blessings!
