A Thankful Heart

With it being Thanksgiving, I thought I would do a post of some of the things I am thankful for...
I am thankful for a wonderful husband who loves and cares for me, who applauds my successes, complements me, supports me when needed, is a good father, honors his priesthood, works hard to support us, I am thankful he can do what he loves and own his own business.
I am thankful for Stir Fry who has been a very sensitive kid from the beginning, he looks out for others, is outgoing, and friendly, he makes friends easier, influences other for the good, and is a great helper.
I am thankful for Baluga who is my little girl and I am glad she is mine, she always makes us laugh, she is loving, strong willed, loves to be with me, a good helper, is content with just observing and learning, and she makes me happy.
I am thankful for Speedy who loves his brother and sister and loves to play with them, enjoys food, being with us, getting into things, sitting on my lap, reading books, and being with everbody.
I am thankful for parents who have always loved and supported me, who have taught me about my Heavenly Father and Jesus and their love for me, who have taught me by example, and always call and check up on me.
I am thankful for my oldest brother who I became good friends with in high school, who has a wonderful family, and loves to learn.
I am thankful for my little brother who I have gotten to know better with him being down here going to school and living with us for a while, I glad we can live near each other now and he has a great family that we get a long with.
I am thankful for my baby brother who has become my good friend with him living with us for several month, for giving me a wonderful birthday present and helping me become more healthy, for calling me up just to talk and that we will get to see him.
I am grateful that my family has a relationship with our Father in Heaven and are great examples to me.
I am thankful for friends who help keep me sane and are a great support to me and my family.
I am thankful for a house that we love and is ours and is where my family will grow.
I am thankful for the wonderful area in which we live and for great neighbors and a good ward.
Most of all I am thankful for my Father in Heaven, my testimony of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, for a living Prophet, for the knowledge I have that we can receive personal revelation for our own life, for priesthood blessings, and scriptures, and for the opportunity I have to be with my family together forever through the sealing powers found in the temple.
Of course there are many other things I am thankful, but no one wants to read that long. So what are you thankful for?

We are thankful for you Erin for the love you give us and the good mom that you are. I wish that we lived closer so we could enjoy Thanksgiving. It's pretty quiet around here. The men are taking naps. But the house smells good. We love your family and can't wait to see you again.
