November has come so quickly this year- and in fact, this year has gone by faster than any other year in my entire life. Brig and I have been married for 11 months now- how is that possible!? It seems like only days… and yet it seems like my life has never been without him. I am so happy to look back on our 11 months of marriage (and now 1.5 years total of courtship!) and find so much to be grateful and joyful about. I, personally, never thought I would be so happy- but I am that happy!
This November is going to be a good one, a sweet one. I can feel it! I am feeling the impact of all of the blessings Heavenly Father has given me in my life, and He’s allowing me to taste how sweet life really is when you love unconditionally and are happy with the possessions you have and the health you’ve enjoyed.
My little family is so much fun, and each day greets us with something new to be thankful for. Like this morning- I am so thankful for grocery stores that are so close and that are open early- because when you wake up and find nothing in the fridge or cupboards to eat, you can just whisk over to one and feed your family for only a few dollars. It made me think of when I lived in Liverpool, and we ran out of toilet paper… but none of the stores were open till 10:00! (We were having an out-of-country-experience!). Yes. I am grateful for early-morning grocery visits.
This is a good month for gratitude, and I think I will try to cultivate that part of me just a little bit more.
1. I am grateful for my handsome, charming, funny, intelligent, interesting, fun, and wonderful Husband
2. I am grateful that I can live in a safe city, a safe neighborhood, and a place that lets me have my puppies!
3. I am grateful for my friends- my new and old friends who have supported us and loved us in all of our “forms”
4. I am grateful for opportunities to give.. Like Birthdays! (Brig: I know something you don’t know!)
(Stay tuned for more stuff to be grateful for!)
