I Wanted to post this on Thanksgiving Day but I didn't get a chance to. I work at Sears and it was frustrating to see them putting up Christmas the first week of October. What happened with Halloween and Thanksgiving. So as time goes on people have there Christmas Trees up and lights outside and it is so frustrating. I hope that we will all remember Thanksgiving Day and the real purpose of it before we start to celebrate Christmas. I want to share a couple of incidences that have happened to me the two years I have lived here in Springville. The first one happened a year and a half ago in May when I went outside for a morning jog. During that time I was down with things in my life. That was all I could think about. That afternoon I was sitting on my lawn talking to my neighbor when my other neighbor came over and asked if we could keep and eye on his house for a while. I said, are you going on vacation or something and he said his 3 year old son was just diagnosed with leukemia and they were headed for primary children's hospital. I was in shock and reality set in that I should not be complaining about the minor things in my life because it could be worse.
The other incidence that happened was this summer when I went to help a ward member move. I was complaining because I wanted to stay home with my family but as I helped this lady I came to find out her daughter had a heart problem and has to be confined to her house during the winter months because is she catches RSV she could die.
So things like this has made me stop and think that my life could be worse. I am so thankful that my family is healthy and we can do the normal things in life that some people can't do.
Other things I am thankful for
A wonderful husband who is so good to me.
My husband has a job
The gospel
A warm house
The sunshine
My girls
A loving heavenly father that I can turn to in time of need
Inspirational music to help me through the tough times
family vacations together
ect ect ect
I am thankful for Thanksgiving Day to remind me what I am greatful for.

I dropped my drawers!!!!!

So some of you may have grown up knowing that any normal pants go up to.waist until they started making pants that say low rise so they go up as far as below the waist. I was walking to church with Michaela about a month ago wearing my skirt and she says pull your skirt down its up to high on your waist. I said Michaela, any normal clothes go up this high and of course she didn't bleieve me since she has been around this generation where pants sit below the waist. She thought I looked pretty dorky! On with my story I found a cute cute skirt that I really liked but it was a bit short. I like my skirts to be at my knees or below. So I thought I will just buy a bigger size and wear it low with a pin of course. Last week I was merrily walking home from church when all of a sudden my skirt had fallen to my feet. I have never pulled a skirt up so fast. I was so embarrassed as a car drove by. I don't know what they saw but at least I had my white slip on, thank heavens for that. I can laugh about it now but at the time I wanted to crawl in a hole!!!!!!
