Things That We Are Thankful For or Things For Which We Are Grateful

I sat down with the girls today and talked about gratitude. Why? IDK, maybe because Thanksgiving is this week? So, they made this list of all the things that they are grateful for in their lives. Here is the list that the girls made - word for word.

We are thankful for:
turkeys & family
our house & family
God & Jesus & everything that you could imagine
mommies & daddies
sister, cat, fish, mom & dad (glad to know where I stand in the line-up)
the prophet & bishop
Church & temples & everything, except bad guys
my house & warm clothes
bishops & prophets & grandmas & grandpas
the Book of Mormon
my uncles & aunties
books, school, animals
a warm house
cozy bed
all our electricity
the cozy fires & everything that makes us warm
hugs & kisses
food (double entry I know, they like food)
breakfast & lunch & dinner (again with the food)
rice bags (bags that we heat up in the microwave that help keep us warm at night)
butterflies that fly in the air & all the animals that are living
Books of Mormon (see below)
The Best Two Years (a movie I recorded off of BYUTV during conference this year, the girls love it, the humor is right up their alley)

I Know The Plans I Have For You

"I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." Jeremiah 29:11

Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight. Proverbs 3: 5-6
