To borrow from the words our beloved President Monson:
Accentuate the Positive
Eliminate the Negative
Latch on to the affirmative
Don't mess with Mr In-Between.
Good advice then, good advice now. This is a wonderful time to be living here on earth. Our opportunities are limitless. While there are some things wrong in the world today, there are many things right.
We can lift ourselves, and others as well, when we refuse to remain in the realm of negative though and cultivate within our hearts an attitude of gratitude. If ingratitude may be numbered among the serious sins, then gratitude takes its place among the most noble of virtues.
How wonderful to have a day focused on giving thanks.
How much I have to be grateful for.
The most amazing, loving and kind husband
An incredibly loving and supportive family
Darling nephews and a beautiful niece
A faith in the Gospel of Jesus Christ
The ability to share my testimony with those I meet and work with
The opportunity to assist others at a time of great need and pain
The chance to perform surgery
A warm home
The chance to experience all that living in LA has to offer
Frequent visits home to Utah
Co-workers I am going to be crushed to no longer see everyday
Grammy's stuffing and gravy
Starbucks hot chocolate
The Utah Jazz
Christmas tree with glistening lights
The sound of waves crashing on the shore
The smell of peppermint and bubblegum (not together)
The advanced technology I can't imagine living my life without
My red hair
I-tunes for my I-pod
The sound of laughter
And the list goes on and on....
I am grateful for a day of thanks
