Here are my Thank-You-monies

I thought that since my wounderful wife, Amy, had already posted her list of things she is thankful for, that I might be able to do the same. I hope my list does not bore anyone, but here I go:

I am thankful for my marvelous wife, 3 sweet daughters, and caring and considerate family members. They all give my life meaning, joy, laughter, and purpose. Without them, I would be a very lonely man and would not be whole. Amy completes me in so many ways and makes me want to be a better man. I know that I might never be able to show her or make her feel how blessed I am to have her in my life. I am thankful that I have been blessed with 3 wounderful daughters who bring nothing but endless joy, trials, triumphs, and smiles and hugs, which I could never grow tired of.

I am thankful for my health and for my ability to run and exercise, as they are one of the many things which bring me enjoyment in this life. On the same note, I am thankful that Heavely Father had given me the stubborness (or otherwise known as commitment/or determination) not to ever give up.

I am thankful for the gospel and all the peace and harmony it brings to my life. Membership in the church is never an easy thing, but it is always worth it. I have seen so many people in my life without purpose or fullfillment, and the Gospel has contributed to my previously mentioned desire never to give up.

I am also thankful for all of the little things in life such as butterflies, laughter of little children, the feeling of a deep breath of air, the feeling of completing a difficult goal (ie. half-marathon) and never giving up, etc. as my list could go on for days.

I hope that we all take time on a daily basis to be thankful for all that we are given or are otherwise blessed, no matter how little we think it might be, as there are many people who are not as blessed.
