Thanksgiving Thankfuls

I'm thankful that although Jake maybe was taken back by my surprise text on January 1st, he responded.
I'm thankful that Jake didn't abandon me in the mountains on our reconciliation drive.
I'm thankful for his forgiveness, second chance, and love.

I'm thankful that Jake didn't wait until March to propose.

I'm thankful that I have had the temple for 3 years to go to for peace and refreshment

I'm thankful for all the support I had during our engagement.
I'm thankful for the Spirit that helped me make the right choices even if I was a little scared.

I'm thankful for the day I got to marry my best friend, Jake, and become a mom for Abbi and Noah.

I'm thankful for lots of support and modern medicine.

I'm thankful for the things I got to do with the kids and see what a miracle it is for those little minds to grow and learn so quickly.

I'm thankful for the support and patience of my family and friends.
I'm thankful for the re-instituted FMC.

I'm thankful for the Labor Day picnic that was perfect timing for our last family party with Grandpa Stone.
I'm thankful for the knowledge and testimony that Grandpa is very happily reunited with Grandma.

I am thankful for conference and the advice, "It's better to look up."
I'm thankful for Pinterest, a.k.a. Pininterest.

I'm thankful for a homey feeling home and people in it.

I really can't list everything I'm thankful for in one post.  I hope, that if by chance anyone was a repeat visitor to my blog, they would realize I am very thankful all year for all the good people I have in my life.  As this momentous year begins to wrap up, I am relieved, yet anxious, to move on.  I've accomplished more, and learned more, in the last 12 months than in the last 10 years.  I'm excited to take what I've learned forward and appreciate the experiences I have had as memories.
