Mom's Thanksgiving Challenge ... It's on!

I got an email from Mom this morning, where she "dared" me to write down ten things that I am thankful for. I took that dare, and I more than doubled it. Here's my list (in no particular order).

I am thankful for:
  • My family (including my wife, children, parents, siblings, grandparents, in-laws, extended family ... this should count as WAY more than one thing!).
  • My friends.
  • My membership in the church.
  • The gospel.
  • Spiritual experiences.
  • My job.
  • My home.
  • My health.
  • My mobility.
  • My sight.
  • The ability to feel things.
  • My voice.
  • Music.
  • Guitars.
  • Exercise.
  • This beautiful world we live in.
  • My education and my ability to learn.
  • Experiences, both good and bad, that mold me into the person I want to be.
  • The ability to sometimes see things for what they really are (it doesn’t happen all the time, but when it does it sure helps).
  • The scriptures.
  • Animals.
  • The comforts I enjoy, like A/C, a house, a bed, a car, etc.
  • The fact that at any given moment, I can find something to eat or drink.
  • My church calling (sometimes).
  • The cultures of the world (foods, music, languages, etc).

Thanks for the idea, Mom!
