Thankful Thursday

What a great time to take a couple minutes out of my day to think about things I'm thankful for. It's been quite a week. This will be good for me.

Well, first of all I'm thankful that the student who tried to burglarize me yesterday didn't succeed. I'm also thankful he's suspended for the rest of the year. I'm thankful I had enough (barely enough) money in my bank account to pay for my speeding ticket that was due today. I'm thankful that Ben and I found a new apartment in the city that is SUPER cheap. We are going to save almost $800 dollars a month. And we'll be so close to both our schools. It's a little smaller but we will make due. I'm thankful for my health. And I'm thankful I finally started working out this week. What a great way to relieve stress. I'm thankful Ben comes with me to workout. It so fun to spend time together. I'm thankful that the season finale of The Office is still making me laugh a whole week later.

But mostly I'm thankful for the Gospel. I don't know where I would be with out. I'm so grateful I know my relationship with Ben is eternal. I'm grateful my parents taught me about Joseph Smith and his beautiful message that Jesus is the Christ, that He sacrificed His life for us. I'm thankful for the Book of Mormon and I know I am happier when I study it daily. The Gospel is such a beautiful thing and I'm grateful I get to share it with people I love.

Oh, and I'm thankful I have these cute pictures of Max and Jaedon and Ava and Livy together. The boys are digging for treasures in my Mom's flower bed. And the girls are six months apart, can you believe that!

I'm thankful for my Bettylou! I love you very very very very much!
Now it's time for truth... What about this ticket and what about the thug? Details girl...
I'm excited about your new apartment. When are you moving? What is your new address? Send on some pics so we can see for ourselves. We'll definitely miss Pentagon City. That was awesome, but for $7,200.00 a year, I'd move in a heartbeat!
Love, Pa
