So blessed!

Life is truly a crazy, fun, amazing adventure! And there are so many things to be thankful for. Which is why I decided to make a list of every thing I can think of that I am truly thankful for. Things that make me smile or laugh out loud. I am sure this list will continue to grow as time goes by, but for now, here are the things I am thankful for.

1.              Salvation/my relationship with my Savior. This is something I come back to time and again when thinking about the things I am thankful for and things with which I have been blessed. I could not make it through life without Christ and He is the one who gives me strength, happiness and blessings on a daily basis. I can’t wait till the day when we get to spend the rest of eternity with Him!

2.              My freedom. When I wake up in the morning, and see the sunrise lighting up the    mountains outside my window, I   am so thankful for another day to live in this great nation that I call home. I don’t take for granted the many freedoms I still enjoy here in America.

3.              My crazy, silly family. We’ve had lots of fun adventures together and I thank God for them. I’m so blessed.

4.              Friends. Over the years I have had so many amazing friends, and have so many great memories of times spent together. I still crack up laughing when I think about some of our silly moments.
