I've been impressed by reading some other people blogs about what they are grateful for and feel like its time I focus on the positive. There's lots and LOTS and more than I can handle going wrong, but here is what is going right.
I'm grateful for my husband. I know I can trust him completely, and he works dang hard for our family.
I'm grateful for Goose. He brings challenges with him, but I wouldn't change him for the world. I'm grateful that Goose likes to pretend play karate with me. :) It makes me smile.
I'm grateful that Sweetie is so loving. She is always the first to give me a hug and try to make it all better. I'm grateful that she is so artistic, its something we will always share.
I'm grateful for my pink Tank, who is soo girly and soo tough. She recently has started to ask me to tell her stories about when I was a kid. I think I've been asked 10 times today to tell her about when I was a kid and wore tights. lol. Tell a kid once that you slipped and fell on your bum, and it will never be secret again.
I'm grateful for Twister who is so innocent and curious and anxious for life. His smiles and kisses melt my heart.
I'm grateful for a knowledge about my Savior. I would be completely lost without Him. I know that He knows ME. He knows my name and he knows MY struggles. He will get me through this.
I'm grateful for my parents and my in-laws. They have always supported me in all my endeavors.
I'm grateful for our prophet. I'm grateful that I can receive instruction from my Heavenly Father through him.
I'm grateful for good friends who are willing to go out of their way to pick up my favorite drink at the fast food restaurant on her way over to say hi. Friends who will pray for me when I'm feeling overwhelmed, even if I am over-reacting. Friends who I know will let me cry on their shoulder if I need to.
I'm grateful for frozen pizza. (gotta lighten the mood a little... and really, I don't know if I could live without it)
I'm grateful that our house will be warmer this winter. (Not to mention cuter!)
I'm grateful that when it seems like I can't take anymore, but more is put on my shoulders, that I can receive strength from above to make it through.
I'm not quite ready to talk about it, but prayers are needed in our home. Please ask Heavenly Father to strengthen us and help us through this latest trial.
