Today I am thankful for:
The most wonderful parents:
The greatest siblings and spouses:
The sweetest boy:
The sassiest girl:
The funniest little guys:
The nicest ex:
The sweetest friends:
and the coolest boyfriend (first time going public!):
The older I get, the more I realize that the only thing in life that really matters are people. The rest is just stuff (and I know I just did a Dear Santa post..forgive me!)
I also know how hard it is to say goodbye to people in your life who mean a lot to you. People who were there for you in your darkest hour and will always have a special place in your heart. I'm grateful for those people too.
Most of all, I am grateful for my Savior, who doesn't just pat us on the back and say "it's going to be okay." He has literally felt our pain. All of it. He knows what it feels like to be alone, to be uncertain of the future, to be heartbroken when your children are sad. He has descended below all of it and yet has risen again triumphant so that we can too. I am so grateful to be able to celebrate His birth and life this coming Christmas season.
Happy Thanksgiving friends!
