Needing to give thanks

Thankfulness: 'tis the time of year, yes? Of course yes. I feel the need to be thankful more often. I need not only voice it at this time of year, but should be giving thanks daily. Here are a few thoughts today...

I'm thankful that my parents have welcomed me home yet again to do the earnin' and the savin'. I promise, it's only temporary. They are good to their children. We hardly deserve their goodness.

I'm thankful that Noelle Livingston asked me to sing at the YW in Excellence in her ward last night. It was a sweet time for me to reminisce about my own days in YW's, and the choices I've tried to make up to this point in my life. I'm gonna keep on keepin' on. Thanks, girly.

I'm thankful to have a job. A job that I actually like getting up for in the morning. All of those months without a job sucked (for lack of a better word), and recognizing that our unemployment rate is still high, I am incredibly thankful.

I'm thankful to Victoria Jane for giving me a roof over my head for a while. She's da best!

More gratitude to come...
