Much to be grateful for...

One of the hymns sung at my baptism almost 12 years ago was "Count Your Blessings". I think that I forget sometimes just how many blessings I have in my life. I just wanted to take a minute to remember how thankful I am for........

***MY MOM***
*My family. I have 5 beautiful, fun kids and an AWESOME husband who would do anything for me.
*My friends. I feel blessed to have many friends in my life who I love and who love me.
*Our house. I am grateful to FINALLY be living in a nice, comfortable house after living in apartments for the first 8 years of our marriage.
*2 cars. I remember the days when we just had 1 car. All through dental school, almost!! It is a blessing to have 2.
*My Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. That should be number 1 on my list.
*A great extended family. I married into the BEST family in the world.
*All the many talents the Lord has blessed me with.
*Running water. I thought about the Pioneers today as I was doing my dishes and thought how they would freak if they saw how much water I was wasting.
*3 toilets in my house. I remember having 1 toilet for the first 6 years of our marriage and although it was easy to keep 1 clean, it was a pain.
*A hobby to keep me busy. I think without my scrapbooking hobby I would be bored.
*Lots and Lots more!!
