In This Moment

I am grateful for the things that I never knew I would be grateful to have. I am grateful to not have moved for 2 years...for having time to spend with my family, a job for my husband to keep us at home...I am grateful that, although we cannot fly, we can still afford to drive to see my parents in Oregon. I am grateful to appreciate God's timing better every time I am not pregnant and understand a bit more why that is okay. I am grateful to have a large, growing church to attend even if most of the people speak in Russian and I don't totally understand, but grateful that we have the language of the Church in common...I am eternally grateful that my husband is so incredibly supportive in anything I venture. I am grateful that I am well and can watch my daughter grow. I am grateful for friends, old and new, who make this journey more beautiful. I am grateful for the love in my life and the lessons I learn. I am grateful my parents found the Church and that my husband brought me back to it unknowingly. I am solemnly grateful for all that I have and hope to continue finding more things to add to my list, of which is still lacking many things, but rounds out the idea. I am completely grateful for the little things in life and hope to be forevermore.
