Things I am thankful for today

I'm thankful my pregnancy fears are starting to dissipate as I am now able to feel the baby move throughout the day. Creating life is truly a miracle and I feel so blessed to be a co-creator with my Heavenly Father. I don't feel worthy or prepared to take on the responsibility of raising another child but I also remember I wasn't prepared for the first one and how that would change my life. Motherhood is a constant learning process. I'm thankful that I have dirty floors to clean, that I have loads of laundry to do almost everyday, and that I have mouths to feed - I can't imagine life without my children. They make me grow in ways I never imagined. (And I never thought I would use algebra again but it's true - you'll later have to teach your children how to do it)

I'm thankful to have my new 72 hour kits ready to go and it's been nice that my kids have had an array of "free snacks" to munch on whenever they're hungry. It's such a peace of mind knowing that we are prepared should any emergency arise.

Saving the best for last... I am so grateful for our Savior's eternal plan of happiness. I have so much more to learn about the gospel but I try everyday to become just a little more like Him. Sometimes I fail, sometimes I move forward, but I'm always trying my best. I'm thankful that families can be sealed together forever in His holy house because otherwise this earthly life would be for naught. Sometimes it seems easy - pray, read your scriptures, go to church, keep the commandments. Sometimes I get caught in the "thick of thin things" and forget what's really important. This life is test and the time is passing quickly. I ask myself, "What have I done with the time the Lord has given me today?" and challenge you to ask yourself that same question and then... do something about it.
