Happy Thanksgiving

I was sitting here going through my inbox and I came across an email from The New Words of Wisdom (a LDS book store in Chicago). It had a thought for the day that I really liked and thought I should make sure that more people saw it.

"This is a wonderful time to be living here on earth. Our opportunities are limitless. While there are some things wrong in the world today, there are many things right, such as teachers who teach, ministers who minister, marriages that make it, parents who sacrifice, and friends who help.

We can lift ourselves, and others as well, when we refuse to remain in the realm of negative thought and cultivate within our hearts an attitude of gratitude. If ingratitude be numbered among the serious sins, then gratitude takes its place among the noblest of virtues."

Thomas S. Monson, "An Attitude of Gratitude," Ensign, May 1992, 54

Monday night, Kelly's lesson for FHE was on being thankful. After her short lesson we all sat around and made suggestions of things that we were thankful for while Kelly wrote them on the dry erase board. Megan counted later and we came up with 70 different things. We probably missed some that we take for granted as well.

Make sure to come back later to see photos of the huge pie that Kelly is making. You'll be thankful you did.

I'm anxious to see those Thanksgiving pics, and hear how Kelly's big Enrichment went.
