1. Of course, my family
3. My church family
4. Our jobs (which keeps the house functioning)
5. Our old victorian home (that keeps us warm, when I turn up the heat)
6. Our cars that get us every where we want/need to be
7. Memories of what we've learned
8. Memories of what we've overcome
9. My marriage that was announced 17 years ago (stressing our parents out because we only knew each other for 2 weeks.)
10. Visiting Teaching (laughing and crying with my sisters)
11. Relief Society (for all the things I've learned to manage my faith, family, and home)
12. Genealogy (a hobby that makes me happy)
13. teaching under priveledged students (even when it's hard)
14. watch my children figure out who they are
16. the smell of good food being cooked in my kitchen

18. Priesthood blessings, for when I feel like I've been pushed over the edge
19. pumpkin pie with whipped cream
20. warm cups of hot cocoa on gray days....
...There are so many more, but the list is endless.
It's amazing when you take the time to count your blessings to see how quickly they add up. So I'm going to try to count blessing more when I'm feeling discouraged. It's an instant attiude adjustment.
I can't forget my daughter's kittens who like to attack your feet and hide in the decorations...
