What Are You Thankful For?

December 1, 2009

In the spirit of Thanksgiving, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints produced this clip.  It is short, sweet, and uplifting.  I hope that you will enjoy it.

In the Spirit of Thanksgiving

Here is what I am thankful for:

  • A church leader who challenged me to be grateful and have a positive attitude and the commandment to be be thankful for ALL things (D&C 78:19, Ephesians 5:20), the good and the seemingly bad.
  • My beautiful wife, who always answers my calls with a voice that lets me know she is happy that I called.  Did I mention that I know that I can trust her 110% and that she loves me unwaveringly?
  • My two kids who stand at the sliding door, bang on it, and shout “Daddy”, when I pull into the backyard.
  • My Dansko shoes–they are saving my knees and feet.
  • My attending physicians who, at times, seem to expect nothing less than perfection.
  • Chocolate chips in the cupboard and that I forget they are there until I need a little chocolate.
  • That I have to work hard to feel successful.
  • My motorcycle–it has the absolute best air-conditioning.
  • Horton the Elephant.
  • Doctors who show me what kind of doctor I want to be (and sometimes the kind I don’t want to be).
  • The opportunity I have to share my beliefs in God with all of you through this website.

How about you?

    That is something to be very thankful for indeed. I am always amazed at how much weight people have on their shoulders, but they still can have a positive attitude. I wish you the very best Robyn.
