Verily I say unto you my friends, fear not, let your hearts be comforted; yea, and rejoice evermore, and in everything give thanks. D&C 98:1
Ethan made this thankful list in primary at church. I thought it was great! Here it is:
I am thankful for Jesus because he died for us.
I am thankful for Oliver because he likes me to read to him.
I am thankful for Ethan because I am funny.
I am thankful for Mom because she makes dinner for us.
I am thankful for Dad because he loves me.
I asked Oliver what he was thankful for yesterday. Here is what he said:
I am thankful for mommy because she is nice and she makes cookies with me.
I am thankful for my brothers because they are fun to wrestle with.
I am thankful for Star Wars because it is so cool.
I am thankful for dad because he rides horses with me.
So, I asked Del what he was thankful for. Here is his list:
A free country
A pair of blue jeans that fit just right
A good job
If Dillon could understand the concept of being thankful, here is what he would say:
I am thankful for trains, mommy's truck, bananas, the kids coming off the bus (his brothers), and horse rides with daddy.
Here is my thankful list:
I am thankful for the beautiful scenery outside my house because it reminds me of God's love and just makes me happy.
I am thankful for my three boys who are so sweet to their mommy and love me regardless.
I am thankful for snow, without it their would me no snowboarding, sledding, adventurous driving, snow angels, snow forts, snow balls, snow days (remember those in Pinetop?) and no winter FUN!
I am thankful for my hubby, Del who is the most compassionate, romantic, thoughtful, sweet, and handsome person I know. And he looks really good in a pair of wranglers and a cowboy hat. And Del if you read this, I am really thankful for you, for all your hard work, for loving me despite all my flaws and for being the best daddy in the world.
