Giving Thanks

Finally a Thanksgiving post! I realized I needed to post something about Thanksgiving before it's too late, so here it goes! Lately it seems like I've spent a lot of time thinking about all the things I've been blessed with and today simply verified just how much I have! So here's my attempt at a small, but sincere list of things I'm grateful for this Thanksgiving......

For loving family members who set good examples for me and love me for who I am- for strong friends who understand me and help me to be better-for nieces and nephews who teach me something new every day-for parents who give me so much but still make me work for the important things-for hot showers-for a warm house to come home to and feel the spirit-for my religion-for laughter-for memories-for my health-for my job-for the ability to learn-for chocolate creme pie! :) -for hope and faith-for prayer-for technology-for strength to get through trials-for rainy days-for hot chocolate!-for hugs-for kisses-for the butterflies you get when you experience something new and\or exciting-for mother nature-for flowers-for Christmas lights-for Freedom!-for the ability to dream-for shooting stars-for puppies-for babies!-for pictures-for happiness-for rainbows-for sugar cereal-for smiles-for pajamas-for the choice I have to not shave my legs! haha-for low gas prices!-for clean sheets-for bubble baths-for ice cream-for talents-for culture-for music-for chapstick lol-for good books-for naps-for jokes-for Temples-for love!-and for so many other things that can't possibly be listed due to lack of space and time!

And I'm especially grateful for this blog, to share my thoughts and keep in touch with my family and friends! Hope everyone ate lots of Turkey! :) Happy Thanksgiving!

Tori Jensen.... How wonderful to see your beautiful face! It has been a long time! I thought I saw you the other day at Victoria Secret.. You looked so different I was afraid to approach you in the case that it wasn't you... but seeing you now, I am certain! Heh! Next time there will be no hiding.. hope you are well.

Tori, you're so cute. I especially like the part about having a choice of whether to shave your legs or not!!! : )
