Gratitudes for November 5

Today's blessings include:

1. Finding out that Miss E had not lost her library book but had already turned it in. THAT was the reason we could not find it. So, she was able to check out a new book. Hooray! (and as a bonus, both Miss E and I were grateful for her Specials teacher who checked for us. Thanks Mrs. A!!!!)

2. Wedge Salad from Johnny Carino's restaurant. Yum.

3. Miss Q's ability to go to bed sooooooo easily. Again, HOORAY!

"As with all commandments, gratitude is a description of a successful mode of living. The thankful heart opens our eyes to a multitude of blessings that continually surround us. President J. Reuben Clark, formerly a First Counselor in the First Presidency, said: 'Hold fast to the blessings which God has provided for you. Yours is not the task to gain them, they are here; yours is the part of cherishing them' (Church News, 14 June 1969, 2)" (James E. Faust, "Gratitude As a Saving Principle," Ensign, Dec 1996, 2).
