Ability to Hear and Talk

At the mission, I helped a lady who is deaf and can't speak.

It was so hard for me.

I don't want to see anyone suffering.  She had also had a fall, so that her leg and arm were wrapped in something.

She wrote that she is still in pain.

Oh, I am so grateful for my life.

Ability to MOVE!

I don't move a lot.

But, I'm grateful that I still can.

Men are meant to move.  HA HA, I guess women are too.

Bit, I'm a sitter, a reader, a crossword puzzle doer, a relaxer...

I just don't move much.

SO, I'm grateful for my ability to move.

So MUCH To Be Thankful For!

Seen at the grocery store;

an older lady crippled with spine issues.  She was bent over practically double.  Oh, I was thankful to be able to stand up straight.

Seen at the mission:

a beautiful new young sister missionary with spina bifida, so she is confined to a wheelchair and has been her entire life.  Oh, I am thankful to be able to walk!

Seen on Facebook:

a dear friend was in a horrible accident and did something to her neck, so she will be out of commission and in great pain for several months.  OH, I am thankful Allen didn't get hurt when his vehicle was swerving like the Needham.

Seen from afar:

stories of sorrow, tragedy, death, loss, heartache.  Oh, I am thankful for my life and situation just now.

Allen's Willingness to Sell Some SUTFF his pickup and his boat and his trailer.

They represent a lot of money tied up in those items that were rarely used.

So, when he said he'd sell them, I was actually quite stunned.

But, he wants to earn money instead of spend it.

So, he will invest in stocks.

We'll see how that goes, but in the meantime, we'll be saving money by taxes and insurance.

And, I am grateful.

My Primary Class

I love those eight little dears.

They are delightful, happy, and so very innocent.

They are all being raised in the Gospel and have such bright futures ahead of them.

Thank you, Heavenly Father, for this opportunity!

Just the Way Life is Right Now!

I'm grateful.

I don't want anything to change.

I like the way things are.

Just stay.


Because I feel happy and thankful.
