What I'm really thankful for...

So, there is this blog that I follow, you can find the link in bloggy love - listed in the side column - "Lady in the skirt" and in Tara's most recent post she writes what she is thankful for and I was thinking, I should do that, too. So...


Dear Heavenly Father,


I'm so thankful for you (thee, thou) you know what I mean! I'm thankful for my husband who provides for our family so I can be a stay at home mom to our three beautiful daughters. Mark is my very best friend and I love him so much. And yes, I'm so thankful for the girls. They really keep me on my toes - they can be very demanding at times, but I love them dearly. I'm grateful for my calling to teach the youth in Sunday School. It's very scary that the Bishop wants me to teach in Dutch. I think I can do it but my stubborn pride keeps getting in the way and I my natural laziness just wants to teach in English... please help me to understand the Bible words in Dutch! I'm very grateful for my girlfriends. Life without them would be so stressful. I really love having friends that listen when I talk and talk and talk and talk. Krista, Genei, Judith, Vanessa, Angelique, Cate and Cat - thanks! I'm thankful for my family and friends back in the U.S. and I'm so exicted to see you all soon. I'm so excited for my girls to play with their cousins, friends (Collin and Ethan) and cherish the memories. And finally, I'm very grateful to my Savior Jesus Christ who overcame death so that I may live again with Father in Heaven. I'm grateful that Jesus suffered in Gethsemane so that I may repent for my sins. God your great! I love you!

Good post! I'm thankful for blog buddies like you! And I think you can teach in Dutch - you will do great!! Once you get used to it, you'll wonder why you ever worried about it in the first place! Good luck my friend!
