At this time of year, I think everyone reflects on the things in their life that they are thankful for.  I feel so much gratitude already daily because of all the blessings I receive, but I wanted to take a moment to truly focus and say "thank you" for my blessings.
     I am so thankful for a wonderful husband.  Not only does he go to work every day to provide for our family, he cooks, he cleans, he bathes children, he helps kids with homework, he waits on me hand and foot, he is spiritually strong, he is my best friend.  There is no way I could ever make it without him.  I am so grateful that he is mine forever!  I love him so much!
     I am thankful for each of my children.  They are what keeps me battling my cancer when I think I have had enough.  They bring me so much joy, and make me smile every single day.  I love each and every one of them more than words can say.  

    I am thankful for my loving, supportive parents, and for their examples.  I am thankful for my brothers and sisters, grateful that we are all really good friends, and how much love they show me.  I am thankful for Dan's parents and family.
    I am thankful for the gospel, and for Jesus.  How could I endure all of my trials without Him?  I am thankful for the scriptures.  I am thankful that I have the knowledge that my family is forever!!  What comfort that gives me.
    I am thankful for all the service we receive.  Whether they are small or large acts of kindness, each and every one is so appreciated.  I am grateful for those who read my blog, and put up with my ramblings, and give me support and encouragement.  I am grateful for all of our friends and extended family.  We have the BEST support system ever, and we are so grateful for each and every person who is there for us, whatever the need may be.  
     I am grateful for our home, and our wonderful neighborhood, this beautiful area, to live in America, for the medical treatments that have kept me alive for 18 months, for the kind doctors and nurses who take care of me, for pain medicine, for anti-nausea medicine.    
     There are so many more blessings that are too numerous to count.   Just like the hymn "Count your Many Blessings"  that we recently sang in church, I needed a reminder to do this.  When we sang the third verse, tears came to my eyes, and I was overwhelmed by the feeling of love for my Heavenly Father for all the blessings He has given me.  The third verse was especially touching:

So, amid the conflict whether great or small,
Do not be discouraged, God is over all.
Count your many blessings, angels will attend.
Hope and comfort give you to your journey's end.
Count your blessings, name them one by one.
Count your many blessings, see what God has done.

Happy Thanksgiving to everyone today.  May you take the chance to count your many blessings!  Thank you once again for being a blessing in my life with all of your love and support!  I love you all.
Love, Amber
