Happy Late Thanksgiving

So Thanksgiving break has come and gone (boo-hoo!) but that means that there are only two weeks until the semester is over (YEAH!) and that means that I'm one semester closer to graduation (HIP HIP HOORAY!!!!). I love Thanksgiving and I realize every year how much we truly have to be thankful for. So here is a list of the things that I am thankful for this year:
1) I am thankful for my Savior and the fact that I know Him and that He keeps blessing our family so abundantly!
2) I'm thankful for my husband, who works so hard to provide for us (and supports me while I'm still in school!)
3) I'm thankful for two adorable children, who make me laugh every day and remind me that life is short! Dust will be here tomorrow- but they won't be babies for long!
4) I'm thankful for family- immediate and extended, who give us so much love and so many memories and keep life interesting and worthwhile!
5) I'm thankful for friends- nearby and far away, who teach us that it doesn't matter how near or far away you are, true friendship surpasses all miles.
6) I'm thankful for good books that keep me sane!
7) I'm thankful for reality TV (well, some of it- Like Extreme Makeover Home Edition) that show me how crazy life is, but how great it can be!
8) I'm thankful for music that uplifts my spirit and makes my heart soar!
9) I'm thankful to live in a country where I can tell you what I'm thankful for, and that God can be at the top of that list!
10) I'm thankful for the soliders that help keep it that way!
And I could go on, but I'll stop it there! We really are very blessed and I'm so glad that we have a national holiday that is set aside to make us think about how much and how well we are blessed!
So happy late Thanksgiving to all! May we never stop being thankful for all the abundant blessings we've been given!
