Thankful Thursday

I'm feeling somewhat discouraged today; discouraged with the world I live in and how much worse it will get while my children are growing up. I'm also discouraged with people today since they are the ones making the world what it is and after I write this, I'm swearing off the news for a bit. Nothing like ignoring the issues to make you feel better, right?;)

Because of this downer feeling, I want to make a list of things I'm thankful for today instead of just elaborating on one thing. This is not a complete list because that's impossible, but it's a short summary that I hope inspires some happy and grateful feelings in you and me today. So, in no particular order, today I am thankful for:

  • Smiles on my sons' faces
  • Electricity
  • Indoor plumbing
  • A van for me and a car for my husband so I don't have to drive him to work or feel "trapped" at home during the day
  • Ice cream:)
  • Washing machines and dryers
  • Scriptures
  • Good books
  • My generous parents
  • Totally awesome brothers and Tanya
  • A husband who is reasonable and logical, giving me contact with at least one sane person every day.
  • A husband who is handsome
  • A husband who plays with his kids and makes them laugh
  • A husband who is hilarious. To remove the need for jokes here, Bret, all "a husband" items are indeed referring to you and not multiple men.
  • The chance to be a stay at home mom
  • Common sense
  • Couches, chairs, and comfortable resting places
  • Showers
  • Gospel truths
  • Water
  • Food processors
  • Telephones
  • Portable cribs
  • Disposable diapers
  • Temples
  • Trust
  • Budgets
  • Shoes...and socks!
  • Disney movies and cartoons from back when cartoons were awesome:)
  • Ovens that I don't have to worry about my kids getting burned on
  • Refrigerators
  • Alone time
  • Family time
That's the list for now. I think it's time for me to go bake something. Enjoy this thankful Thursday and your weekend, too!
