I am so blessed

I am so blessed! I have been thinking a lot since Thanksgiving week about the many incredible blessings in my life. I am so filled with joy as I think about my beautiful family, and the privilege I have of staying home with my children. I am so thankful that I could go to Braydens Preschool feast, paper hats and all! I am thankful to have a home, one that I can decorate for the Christmas season, and invite the warmth of the Spirit into. I am so thankful for family and friends, without whom this busy life of school, work, and children would be utterly impossible! I am grateful for my own little "village" who take my children to get their faces painted when I am studying, and feed them dinner while I am off taking tests! As I look around tonight and see the beautiful white snow, and the Christmas lights, the greenery and bows, I am thankful for this time of year, and profoundly thankful for my Savior Jesus Christ. What would all of these things be worth without his birth and sacrifice for me?! I am so blessed!
