i LOVE this

Take a Gratitude Challenge
By John Hilton III and Anthony Sweat

Let’s not just talk about counting our blessings—let’s do it! Write a list of 100 things you are thankful for. If that sounds like it is too many, try this:

1. Write 10 physical abilities you are grateful for.
2. Write 10 material possessions you are grateful for.
3. Write 10 living people you are grateful for.
4. Write 10 deceased people you are grateful for.
5. Write 10 things about nature you are grateful for.
6. Write 10 things about today you are grateful for.
7. Write 10 places on earth you are grateful for.
8. Write 10 modern inventions you are grateful for.
9. Write 10 foods you are grateful for.
10. Write 10 things about the gospel you are grateful for.

When we make a list like this, we discover that a list of 100 doesn’t even begin to scratch the surface of all the things God has given us.

I know, I know

Here is a picture of Abby...she is about 30 lbs now, but she still looks this cute :)

Yes I know, it's been a long

Jon and I are still in Mesquite, Nevada. We were called to be in the nursury when we first moved here. I am not a fan of the nursury at all. Well about a month ago, they needed a substitute in primary so they had Jon and I do it. I love primary. I have been in it since I was 18 years old. Well that same sunday we were sitting during singing time and I had Jon go and get paper and crayons. He came back with a smirk on his face and he wrote me a note. It said that he was just called to be in the Young Men presidency. I was like NO WAY. Not fair that I will be in nursury alone. So I called the primary presidency over (we are buddies). I was like, "Kristin, did you know that Jon was just called to be in the YM presidency? did you know about this?"

she said NO. So I said, "I hear you are having a hard time finding a sunbeam teacher, I will totally do it." About 2 weeks later I was called to be the sunbeam teacher! I love it!

Jon is 2nd counselor so he is over the deacons and scouting stuff.

I hurt my back again, but this time it is a nerve in my mid-spine that is being compressed and that nerve comes around to the chest. My back doesn't hurt but everytime I breathe, laugh, caugh, sneeze, talk, move...i feel like I am getting stabbed in the chest. It's horrible. It is especially horrible because I was on a training program to run a 10k the first week in January. We don't know how long recovery will be with my now I am not sure if I will be able to make my goals. It's hard to not get depressed but I have had plenty of time to think how I will prevent this from happening again. So I am good for now. Just going with the flow. Jon is very helpful and loving. He treats me with tenderness. I am grateful for him.
