Giving Thanks Is More Than A Holiday



"Things which provide deep and lasting happiness and gratitude are the things which money cannot buy: our families, the gospel, good friends, our health, our abilities, the love we receive from those around us." –Thomas S. Monson

This video really touched me this Thanksgiving season. Our lives are filled with blessings that are sometimes difficult to see. I love the point of my life I am in. This video gave me perspective. I looked around. I saw my children laughing and playing on the hard wood floor at Grandma's house. I snuggled closer to my love. We may not have ALL of the things that the world offers, but we have ALL of the things we need. I am thankful for the faith I have developed in a relationship with my Savior, Jesus Christ. I am thankful for my beautiful boys. I am thankful for my extended family.  Even when the world feels like it is crashing down, look up. Appreciate the beauty of this earth. A simple bird flying by, singing her heart out or the blue sky against white fluffy clouds. There is much to be thankful for. Look around.
