Gratitude is the Best Attitude

So last week for our FHE Josh and I talked about the first Thanksgiving and then we made a 'thankful thoughts' box. What we do with this box is everyday on a piece of paper we write down at least one thing that we are thankful for and on Thanksgiving we will open it up and read them out loud. So I just wanted to share, in lieu of the upcoming holdiay, some of the things I am so grateful for.

* I am grateful for such a wonderful husband that works so hard without a complaint!
*I am grateful for our baby boy that is coming in April
*I am so grateful for the gospel and the happiness it brings into our lives and our home
* I am grateful for our job here that lets us live rent free
* I am grateful for great family and friends!!

I could probably go on and on but these are some of the things I am most grateful for right now. I am so excited for all the food this year. I get to have 2 Thanksgiving meals and what more could a pregnant gal ask for?? So I hope you all have a great Thanksgiving, and Happy Black Friday shopping to you all too.

Thats cute you guys have FHE together. Is it weird having it with just you guys? I wish I didn't think it was weird because then we would do it together. I'll start when we have kids to teach.
