Just SOME of the things I am grateful for this year...


We had a WONDERFUL Thanksgiving at my parents with family and friends.  I felt strong, my children were happy, my mom is feeling better (after a big surgery 2 weeks ago), and our hearts were full as
we have SO MUCH TO BE THANKFUL FOR!!!
We went around and each drew a scrabble tile and shared things we were grateful for that began with the letter we picked.  It was amazing how easy it was to think of things (except for the letter "Z".)  We truly are blessed!  Silly picture, I know...but this is me...grateful to be doing dishes.  It is amazing what you miss after a year of not being able to do anything for yourself.  I was just thrilled to have the energy and strength.  It was a beautiful day!

Glad you guys had a good Thanksgiving. Love the idea of the Scrabble tiles for thinking of things you are grateful for!

Also, tell Elder Durgess that we said "Hi". He just left our ward two weeks ago. I didn't realize he was still here in Richland!

I am thankful you are doing so well (even with the side effects that sound very not fun). I'm glad you get to feel more and more like a Mom again. You look fantastic & I love you!
