Slacking!

Our theme in Sacrament meeting today was on gratitude, then I went to Young Women's and our lesson was also on gratitude- it made me realize that I have been slacking on my "I'm thankful for" posts. Here is a list to make up for the last few days-

1. Our Veterans- our bishop had all the men or women that have ever served in the Armed Forces stand and be recognized. It was beautiful and moving. I am so grateful for these men and women who serve our country!

2. The BYU Men's Chorus- These cd's are some of my most cherished in my collection, which is saying a lot! There is no better way to start out your Sabbath Day!

3. Socks- I adore him!









4. Saturday mornings- they are my favorite day of the week because I get to sleep in. Sleeping in is my most guilty of guilty pleasures. I love days that I don't have to set an alarm clock and I can just get up whenever I wake up- it is a beautiful thing. I know that I am completely spoiled that I am able to sleep in- it is one of the few perks of being single!

5. Family traditions- My Mom made these adorable pilgrims when she and my Dad were first married. They came out every year at our house and I loved them. When my parents retired my Mom decided it was time to get rid of some things. I was lucky enough to get first dibs on the stuff she was getting rid of. I couldn't let these get away- they hold so much sentimental value! Mom shakes her head at me and tells me they are ugly, but I treasure them!













Well, that caught me up for this week. I'll try and do better next week.
