Gobble Gobble

It's that time of year when you whip out the ol' bird and taters and have a feast! It also is that time to remind you of what your thankful for. Since I tend to complain more than be grateful I need this holiday once a year to remind me all the blessings I have!

First and foremost I am definitely grateful for my husband Jakey boy! We have been married almost a year and I couldn't be happier! Really! Sure we have had our Up's, and our down's. Any maybe sometimes are downs are really LOW, but I am so grateful for this man. He really truly makes me happy. He is always willing to make me happy and put me first. He is always the first to come say sorry, and hates fighting. He is trying really hard to make my life, everything I have dreamed of and he sure has. He is truly my best friend and I don't know what life was like before him! I Love Him.
(what a hottie)
I am thankful for my family. I have 2 great parents. 3 sisters. And a little brother. What more could a girl ask for? It might help that my parents are amazing and have helped me get to where I am today. They have pushed me to reach my dreams and are still helping me today! They do so much for me and I could probably never repay them! I am so thankful to have 3 sisters who all live here in Utah County and who all happen to be my best friends. I love these gals! They are there for me no matter what. I don't understand people who aren't best friends with their sisters. Mine are incredible! My little brother is such an amazing kid. Even though he is younger than me he is one of my biggest examples. He has such a sweet personality and testimony. I hope to be like C.J. when I grow up ;)
I am also grateful for my other family. My in-laws the Frahm's. I married into a great little family. I know without a doubt this was the family I was supposed to come to. My in-laws Dave and Wendy, have treated me like a member of the family since I got there. They treat me like gold and are always going out of there way to do whats best for me and Jake. Rebecca and Mike have been so wonderful to have as a sister and brother. All because of this family, I have a wonderful guy!
I am grateful for my home.
I am grateful for my car.
I am grateful for my health.
I am grateful for each day I am alive.
I am grateful for my job.
I am grateful for food.
I am grateful for clothes.
I am grateful for the income we make.
I am grateful for my dog, Bubba! :)
I am grateful for books.
I am grateful for my best friends LC, Naomi, Lisa, Kelly
I am grateful for love.
I am grateful for internet (so I can tell you good folk about my life)
I am grateful for school (even though some days it makes me cry)
I am grateful for my talents.
I am grateful for my personality.

I am grateful for lots and the list can go on and on. But in the end I owe it all to my Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ. As the Christmas Season is approaching, I remember his birth and also what he did for me as an individual. Because of him I am able to be sealed to my family and husband for all eternity. Because of him I can humble myself and realize I'm not perfect but I can keep trying and one day become perfect. Because of him I am able to see Grandma Virginia, Grandpa Leslie, and Baby Carson. I am grateful for this gospel. I know this is the one and true church and I am grateful to have a testimony of it. I love this life.
Happy Thanksgiving!
