Gratitude for November 6

"Gratitude is a mark of a noble soul and a refined character. We like to be around those who are grateful. They tend to brighten all around them. They make others feel better about themselves. They tend to be more humble, more joyful, more likable."~Joseph B. Wirthlin, "'Live in Thanksgiving Daily'," Ensign, Sep 2001
Today, I am grateful for:

1. Toilet Paper and Flush Toilets. I know at some point, in the premortal world, I told the Lord that I'd come to Earth only if I could live in a time with both of these wonderful inventions. Seriously. I think that.

2. Telephones and cell phones. Contact at a moments notice. Love it. So glad for it.

3. Friends who let me babysit their children. Not only is it a great thing for my kids because they get to play and frolic and release all sorts of pent-up energy (AND I don't have to hear the, "Mom! I'm bored" thing), but it allows me to see my friends and chat and realize that they trust me with some of the most precious and beloved people in their lives, so it's good for my self-esteem. And I love it when all the kids play great together, which is what happened today.

I am recently grateful for flushable wipes. I don't know how we ever got along without them. Our kids aren't the best wipers and so their doctor told me about flushable wipes. Let just say it smells better in our house. :o)

And we are grateful that you were willing to become daycare for the morning :). You are so sweet.
