Gratitude List

There is so much to be thankful for that I often take for granted. This is just a little place for me to write down what I am thankful for and a place to refer to when I need to be reminded of gratitude.

1. My Savior, Jesus Christ
2. My family, immediate and extended
3. Sunshine on a cold day.
4. My sweetheart who I kiss before he leaves for work so that he will be extra safe!
5. Autumn in Iowa.
