My friend, Jamie, has started to do what she calls, "the daily ten" on her blog. She basically lists ten things she is grateful for that has happened to her that day. I love the idea and thought I would give it a try. I have been trying to focus more on the positive, and this is a great reminder.
1.) Sacrament meeting was especially inspiring today.
2.) Dan and I are going to New York City in March! Hooray!
3.) Every month at work we order cookies for our patients, and this month we ordered cookies I do not like. I have lost a couple pounds from not inhaling about 3 Otis Spunkmeyer cookies a day....and Dan has noticed ;)
4.) I had 3 women at church today ask me to help them decorate their houses.
5.) Dan and I got called to be "Ma" and "Pa's" for the upcoming pioneer trek for our stake. We will be in charge of about 9 youth, helping them learn about the pioneers, and to feel the spirit as we reenact what they went through.
6.) Today I watched a few of my friends with their babies in church, and I truly felt a strong desire to start a family. Something I have been struggling with for a while.
7.) Dan cooked me dinner tonight, and spent the entire evening with me, which is very rare,(not the cooking dinner part, but the breaking away from homework to hang out with me part. He cooks dinner all the time:)
8.) There are fresh flowers on my dinning room table, and I see them every time I walk into the room. Fresh flowers are one of my favorite things in the world.
9.) I was actually ten minutes early for church this morning, something our bishopbric has asked us to do. I have yet to manage that one. I have been 5 min, even 8 min early but never ten!
10.) I was able to finish a couple crafts I have been wanting to work on.
Now you try it!
