Thankful

I have so much to be thankful for in my life. It seems like my life never goes according to plan and my hopes and dreams never turn out to be exactly what I have envisioned. I do know that my Heavenly Father has a plan for my life, the last few years I have struggled to know what that plan is. At times I have become so worn down by my problems/dashed hopes that I have lost the ability to live my life to the fullest. I have so much to be grateful for, I thank my Heavenly Father everyday for my amazingly wonderful husband who I couldn't live without! He is my greatest blessing! I have the best sisters anyone could ask for and I am extremely grateful for such amazing parents. I need to stop focusing on the things that I don't have and start really focusing on all of the blessings that I do have.

Janelle, I loved your post. Life is never easy. We all have trials. It's what you do with those trials that mold us into the eternal beings that we strive to become.

And you my dear are thriving, even in your trials. Keep up the good work!

Hi Janelle! I loved your post! Seriously you are the best friend I know!! :) I know my struggles according to me are awful, and you may feel the same, but just remember there is someone else out there going through worse! I really liked what you said that we should be grateful for the things that we do have instead of wishing for the things we don't have! Thanks for saying that! I definitely need to start looking into that direction! Thanks so much for everything you do! You are the best! :)
