64 Things We're Thankful For

"It frustrates me that..."

"I hate how..."

"I wish..."

We've been married 5 weeks and 2 days and life couldn't be greater. Why are we complaining?! Well...as much as I hate to admit it, Tony and I threw ourselves a pity party yesterday. As we made dinner and ate we took turns venting our frustrations and expressing those things we wish were different. It was a good day for a pity party. Do you know why? It's because Monday night is Family Home Evening night! So, after we cleaned up dinner our itty bitty family sat down in our itty bitty family room for FHE #6. We sang Hymn #4 "Truth Eternal" and had an opening prayer and then had a most wonderful lesson on faith. As we discussed our faith in our Heavenly Father, faith that he would bless us with those things that we need I realized the mistake we had made. We had so much to be thankful for and we were throwing a pity party! How could we expect the Lord to bless us with more when we weren't thanking Him for what He had already blessed us with. So we made a list of...
