In the Spirit of Thanksgiving

In the Spirit of Thanksgiving

I loved watching this and it has made me do some thinking. I hope you all enjoy it too! I am not going to lie, this week has not been an easy one for me, but I am grateful for my family, friends, and most of all a loving Heavenly Father and Savior.
I am grateful for the opportunities that I have had throughout my life. I have learned so much from the past. Hard times do make us stronger.
I am thankful for those quiet moments when you know that everything is going to be alright.
I am thankful for the opportunity I have to live so close to a temple and go there often.
I am thankful for random moments that bring laughter and joy to my life.
I am grateful for the tender mercies I have been shown.
I am grateful for the love that I can feel, when sometimes I don't think I deserve it, or at other times when I really need it.
I am thankful for the gospel.
I am grateful to all of you and everything that you have done to help me to find peace, joy, comfort, love, and strength in my life. You are all amazing. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving.

Family Blessing

My niece has been such a blessing to her family, and on Sunday she was blessed. I cannot even explain how amazing it was to be present there. The spirit so strongly. She is such a beautiful little girl.

There was a special feeling of "Forever Families" and I think that below is one of the cutest Forever Families that I know.

I am so grateful that I got be there and share in this wonderful event.

Family Fun!!!

I was blessed with the opportunity to go see my sister and her wonderful family this weekend. We left Pocatello at 6 a.m. I think my mom learned that I am not the happiest camper in the world when I wake up early after getting very little sleep. By the time we got there, I was a much happier person. It could have been the fact that I had food in my stomach, or I had woken up a little, or maybe it was the fact that I got to be around some fun people.

This was my first time getting to see my niece in person. She is so CUTE!!!

We got to spend Halloween with them too. We started out at their ward party.

The boys were so cute. After the ward party, they got to do some trick or treating. It was so much fun to see them both run for the door every time someone knocked, so they could help give candy. My littlest nephew sat on the front porch for while holding the candy bowl, while his brother and nana played with the glow necklaces and bracelets that nana had brought. It was great!
What a great Halloween I spent with Bumblebee, a clown, and Kayleigh "ladybug". (Sorry, I did not get pictures of her in her costume, but take my word, she was cute!)
