Thankful






I truly am thankful. I look at the pictures above and fall in love with my life all over again. I am learning this year that there is no reason to ever complain. I have always been a complainer. A bad trait my husband must deal with. This year, I choose to be thankful for every part of my life. I choose to look at the little things, like snow on Eli's eyelashes or Owen's mischievous smile.

At times, I get bogged down with the imperfect things in life, but I see now that those imperfections are little blessings guiding me through this journey. My life isn't perfect, but my Savior is.

I choose to be thankful, to look closely and to love fully.
