five years

This past Friday, Logan and I celebrated our 5 year anniversary!  WooHoo.  I feel like we have accomplished so much and grown more than I ever thought possible.  We went to dinner to celebrate (I know super exciting ha!) and we were talking about everything we have done, bought, learned, loved, and given.  We never in our wildest dreams would have pictured our life the way it has been!  Logan said that he thought we would have had more that one child by now (where was he when I wanted to have kids??  LOL)  We have been through many many challenges and I am sure we will have many more. 

I am so thankful that Logan took me to the temple to be sealed for all eternity.  He is my knight in shining armor.  I love him more today than I did that beautiful day 5 years ago.  I wouldn't be who I am without Logan and I wouldn't have learned all that I have.  Logan is the most forgiving person that I know... and for that I am extremely grateful.  I have made so many mistakes, but he always sees the bigger and better picture.   Logan always makes me feel beautiful inside and out.  I am lucky to have such a wonderful husband!

Happiness Is A Grateful Heart

Lately I have been thinking a lot about everything I have been given.  I don't think its Thanksgiving do you?  : )

I have wanted to post this for some time now and just the past couple days I have felt the urge to spread this token to pure happiness in this life. 

About 6.5 years ago my visiting teachers came by and with them they brought goodies {of course} and attached to those goodies was a little tag that said Happiness is a Grateful Heart.  Little did they know that this would have such a huge impact on my life and that it would hang on my fridge for years and years.   I have noticed that the times when I have struggled are when I am not being grateful for everything I have been given; the times when I am being completely selfish and unwilling to soften my stubborn attitude.  Does that sound familiar?  Yes, I honestly think all of us were given that little hint of stubborness just to make this life a little more difficult and interesting. 

Life gets crazy all to fast and the world will break us down if we allow it.  It is soo important to atleast acknowledge the blessings in our lives.  Some of you might not believe in praying, or are too afraid to get down on your knees and pray, but maybe if we were all to carry gratitude with us in our hearts the world could truely be a better place. 

When I express my gratitude and recognize the blessings in my life, this positive impact tends to rub off onto others around me.  I feel more loved therefore I can spread more love. 

Every single one of us struggle because of something {debt, money, sex, depression, children, religion, and lots of others} I don't know a single person who has the perfect life.  I hope that when all of these struggles seem overwhelming that your heart will be softened and that you will be able to recognize ALL of your blessings to enjoy happiness.  I hope that your struggles will not bring down those you love or those who are around you. 

I have been blessed with so many things that I am grateful for, so I will keep my list short..  I have a wonderful husband who forgives all of my short comings, a healthy baby girl who looks at me with loving eyes, a messy house, food on the table, clothes in piles waiting to be folded,  and great friends and family. 

What are you grateful for?

Pet Peeve #1

Why is it that when people go grocery shopping they can't ever put the shopping carts away?  ooooo This gets me going every time.  If you are guilty of this please dont take offense.  :)

So we were out doing our regular shopping this past Saturday and its snowy and cold... So what does every one in the world do???  They leave their shopping carts every where... not only in parking spots or the medians but right in the way of people driving.  This only causes more frustration for all of us who are trying to park or leave the parking lot.  What does it take to put a cart away?  Maybe a whole 10 seconds..  Who's lives are affected by this laziness?  Drivers, Pedestrians, ME, The Dear Employees at These Wonderful Grocers, ME, ME  and yes ME again.  My wonderful husband learned of this pet peeve of mine back while we were dating and so he is wonderful and will walk the shopping cart to any cart return just to keep the peace LOL. 

What do I ask?  Quit being LAZY and return the cart! 

That's All!
