I just want to take a moment to be grateful. I have a healthy, precious daughter who is just starting to figure out how to sit up for longer than five seconds. I have a playful husband who loves me, puts up with me, and wants to be with me for eternity.
I have a father who would honestly do anything for me. I have a mother who has been the best role model for motherhood I could have ever wanted.
I have parents-in-law who so selflessly support us during this difficult time and give us a place to call home.
I have a sister is who is my perfect best friend. I have brothers who think I'm pretty great.
I have friends and best friends who cheer me up on sad days and rejoice with me on the good ones.
I have a knowledge of the true and everlasting gospel, and I know the commandments I need to keep and the steps I must take to return to our Heavenly Father.
All in all, life is pretty wonderful. Perhaps instead of thinking "why me" when bad things happen, I should think "why me" when good things happen. And then I should strive to live in a way that will provide adequate answers to the question of "why me" when good things happen. Sad things happen to "good" and "bad" people a like, but I might as well do all I can to deserve in a small way the good things that do happen. And perhaps in trying to be good, I can become a good thing that happens in someone else's life.
Thank you to all you wonderful people who have made my life so amazing. Thank you for being my blessings.
