Thank You So Much (Nov 10 List)

Today, I am grateful for:

1. Paper plates (and for any of you who have been to dinner at my house, you know of what I speak). I love 'em.

2. Hair cuts...I and the girls went and got our hair(s), well, cut today. Hope to post pictures on the blog about it, if we can get the pictures from Super J's camera. Even Miss O got her locks trimmed. We did this for our F.H.E. activity...gotta love that.

3. ...Not getting a ticket. Not that I wanted one, but I'm really glad I didn't get one today while still being on time to pick up Miss A and our neighbor.

"This is a wonderful time to be living here on earth. Our opportunities are limitless. While there are some things wrong in the world today, there are many things right, such as teachers who teach, ministers who minister, marriages that make it, parents who sacrifice, and friends who help.

"We can lift ourselves, and others as well, when we refuse to remain in the realm of negative thought and cultivate within our hearts an attitude of gratitude. If ingratitude be numbered among the serious sins, then gratitude takes its place among the noblest of virtues" (Thomas S. Monson, "An Attitude of Gratitude," Ensign, May 1992, 54).

Oh, I'm borrowing that quote! I love it! I, too, love paper plates. As Vince Vaughn's character says in The Break Up, "Why would I want to do the dishes?"
