Today and forever

{and every day}

It's that time of year again-- my favorite holiday! A time of family and friends, cool weather, colorful leaves, a fireplace if I didn't live in a college apartment, hot chocolate, and most of all...eating! I have so much to be thankful for this year. So many wonderful things have happened and my life is richly blessed. Here's why:

1. Even though I don't get to spend Thanksgiving with them this year again, my family is so great. I love them so much and can't thank them enough for their support.
2. I'm thankful for my family away from home-- My roommates, friends, and my ward. I have people here who care about me.
3. I'm so thankful to have a temple so near. I'm actually going there today!
4. This one might be surprising but I'm thankful for school. I'm glad my mind can handle {most of} the information my teachers give me and that I'm learning to expand my horizons.
5.  I'm grateful that there is a Higher Power who knows what I need even if I don't.
6. I'm thankful for those who see my potential and see me doing great things even when I can't even figure my major out.
7. I have a warm bed and a shower ten feet away. Running water, a working heater, and warm clothes also make life so much easier.
8. I'm thankful for money. I don't have a lot of it but I have enough to get by...and go to college.
9. I'm thankful for my calling (responsibility in the church). I get to hang out with two awesome people that I might not have gotten to know otherwise.   
10. Tomorrow I'm thankful I get to spend the day with Carly and her family and eat good food. Food baby here we come!
