Oh my goodness!  I didn't realize that it had been two months since I've posted anything.  I made a resolve to enjoy life more and spend more time enjoying my family, enjoying my friends, enjoying my life and spend less time on the computer and away from them.  That has been the best decision ever.  So where have I been the last two months?  Well, I'll update that when I have time.  But right now, I want to recognize the holiday we celebrated last week.  It was Thanksgiving.  I love that day, because I know that I don't take enough time to show gratitude for my many, many blessings.  I have been richly blessed in my life and I have been given many gifts and many blessings.

I am so grateful for the things I was taught by loving and righteous parents.  In giving me the gift of the gospel, they have given me a gift that I will carry through my life and that I can wrap around me in every situation I ever find myself in.  They have given me a knowledge and an understanding of things that I'm not sure I'd make it through life without.  I am thankful for being sent to the parents and the family that I was.  My parents are the best mom and dad a girl could ever ask for and I love them both very very much!!

I have some of the best friends in the world!  It helps me get through each day knowing that I have a network of very close and trusted friends who I know will be there to help me in any way they can.  I love you all!

I have been blessed with a lot of people who bring fullness and richness into my life.  I'm grateful for the blessing of being able to find that rare person who makes my life more complete and more fulfilled.  Sometimes, when things seem to be the lowest, and life the hardest, that's when you're given the best gift you could ever imagine...sometimes better than anything you could imagine!!  I'm so grateful that even in my lowest point, my heart was open enough to allow you into it and allow you to help me heal, and to help me become a stronger woman.  I love you.

Thanksgiving was a wonderful day here, shared with family, friends, and loved ones.  It was so nice to spend the day with the people I love the most and to have an opportunity to reflect on how blessed I am.
