Blessed Beyond Measure

I tried to start a gratitude journal and quickly failed, so here is my new attempt to count my blessings.  Obviously this list is eternal and I could never get to everything, but I will try to add more as time goes on.. (These are in no particular order)

  1. I have a loving Savior who died so that I can return to live with my Heavenly Father.
  2. Knowledge that the gospel of Jesus Christ is on the earth today.
  3. A wonderful family that loves and supports me.
  4. A house to protect me from the ever-changing Kentucky weather.
  5. Living in such a beautiful state
  6. School.  I hate to say it but there are so many that don't have this opportunity.
  7. My church family. I don't know what I would ever do without them.
  8. Friends that are there for me no matter what, wherever they may be.
  9. Good health.
  10. The chance to be eternally happy if I am righteous.
  11. Grass.
  12. An amazing extended family.  I don't get to see them very often but I have the best grandparents, cousins, aunts, and uncles in the world.
  13. Missionaries.  They have inspired me so much and are a great example to me every day. 
  14. The new mission age so that I can go at 19!!!! :)

  22. The ability to pray to Him at any time for any reason and know that He will listen
