Today, I am grateful for:
1. Chocolate cake and Red Box $1.00 dvds (both wonderful to take my mind off the election)
2. To live in a land where I can vote, "win" or "lose"
3. Washable markers (have you seen Miss O's picture?????) and digital cameras
"Mercies and blessings come in different forms--sometimes as hard things. Yet the Lord said, 'Thou shalt thank the Lord thy God in all things' (D&C 59:7). All things means just that: good things, difficult things--not just some things. He has commanded us to be grateful because He knows being grateful will make us happy. This is another evidence of His love."~Bonnie D. Parkin, "Gratitude: A Path to Happiness," Ensign, May 2007
