Im Thankful for...

the chance to have done this for this month! Its been such a fun and sometimes challenging thing to find something each day. To end I want to say I am so grateful for selfless people. I had the sweetest act of service done to me yesterday and it still makes me cry. There are some amazing people all over and I am so glad I know them.

the rain and good thing since I live in Oregon! I love falling asleep listening to it pound on the window. The best is staying inside and cooking watching it come down.

the chance to exercise and the way it energizes me. I love to walk and could do it for hours. I am not a runner sometimes I wish I could but asthma slows me down. I think aerobics are so fun and someday I want to attend a zumba class!

Im Thankful for...

the opportunity to serve others. I love the feeling of being able to serve someone else. One of my favorite memories growing up is all of our family piling into the van, and taking treats to neighbors secretly. I decided last night that this should be done again and so I made sugar cookies. Little did I know that my perfectionist roommate would frost 1 cookie in the same amount of time that I did 5:)Hers looked amazing and mine well lets just say they were lacking a bit. We decided on 4 families and we were off. We had a great time and I hope they enjoyed the little bit of service we gave them. Its such a great feeling to do something for someone else! Here is a picture of her amazing cookies!

food and water!Its amazing how many people go without food and clean water.It makes me sad how wasteful we are of these things. I am so glad that I have always had food and water. I am trying to be better about turning the water off when brushing my teeth. I am also donating more to the food bank too. You never know with each can how many smiles you can bring to someone. Maybe you could do this too:)

Music and the amazing things it does for my soul. I love to listen to the Mormon Tabernacle choir it brings peace to me. I am also grateful for the voice I was given for the ability to sing and find harmony. One of my favorite things to do is sing with my siblings.

Gratitude Month

I always feel like November is dedicated to feeling extra grateful for things. I am very blessed and thought that for this month I would blog something I am grateful for each day. I am kind of behind since its already the 4th so here are 4 things I am grateful for.......

1.The freedoms I enjoy thanks to others that put their own lives on the line.

2.My religion that gives me comfort when I need it so often. Also the joy of knowing what is to come after this life.

3.My family that is a huge support system and some of my best friends. People that know all about you and love you anyway.

4.My grandparents that are amazing examples to me of what hardship is all about. The people I have learned from and loved all my life.
