25 November 2010


I could write a standard "what I'm thankful for" post today. So could you probably, and I bet our answers would be similar, the players would all be there, maybe the names would be different. Things like our home, our country, the gospel, family, etc. There is truly so many things to be grateful for.

Now think about 6 months from now. Do you think we'll be thinking about all those things we are thankful for? Or do we just remember once a year?

So here's your Thanksgiving challenge. Take time each week to recognize the things you are thankful for in your life. Maybe take a day, say Thursdays and in all your prayers on those days tell Heavenly Father what you are thankful for and don't ask for anything. I know that if we take the time to realize all we've been blessed with, we'll find that there's even more stuff that we probably just take for granted in our lives that we'll then recognize. So take a thankful day once a week for 6 months, and let's check back on May 25, 2011. Deal? See you then...
