Graditude...

I have thinking a lot about graditude and just what it means to me. Of course I could just give you the text book definition, but what good is that? That is just telling me what it means and going with it. Instead, I want to take about really what it means to me and just what I am grateful for, but I am going to do it with pictures!

First of all I am so grateful for...

He has blessed my life in so many ways. He has brought the church into my life. I was baptised when I was almost 12. I didn't really want to be but it was a family affair. My Mother and Grandmother found something very special in this church and decided that our family needed it. I have to admit, though I wasn't to excited about being baptised, I was very active. I was Active, but for the wrong reasons. Now, I can tell you that I go to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints because I believe in it. I believe all that it has to offer me. I know Heavenly Father Gave me the opportunity to grow in this church when he did so I can grow and learn. That way, when I was ready I would come to apprieciate that decision my parents made. I am grateful to Heavenly Father for providing me leaders in the church that helped me out when I needed them. I am grateful for the Men in the Church that provide the Priesthood to me and my family, and to be the "father figure" that I needed.

and for this...

I am grateful to have this beautiful Temple so close to my home to remind me just how lucky and special I am. To have a House of God so close to mine is incredible.



I am so grateful for


I cannot begin to tell you the graditude I have for my family! They have blessed my life in so many ways. I am such a better person with these two men in my life. I pray that I can be the best I can be for them, to protect them, and to help them become all that they can.


There is so much more that I am grateful for but those are the ones I mostly wanted to touch on today!
