I Have a Blessed Life!

I've been wanting to post about this for a while,  but I just haven't yet because I knew it would take me a while! But this last month I have felt truly blessed and just been truly happy!
I really don't know where to begin, so I will just spill my guts, so it will probably not make sense and not flow well... so that's me warning you!

First thing, life is just hard. It's amazing, fun, has it ups and downs, unpredictable, and everything else. We all go through trials. Through facebook,blogs, and other sources of interacting I have seen many of my friends go through some hardships.  In these last few months I have had a friend lost her father, a friend who lost her husband, a friend that had a miscarriage, a friend that can't get pregnant and has been trying many years, a friend that has had health issues and didn't know what was going on, a friend that has gestational diabetes when she is pregnant... and many more. But what has amazed me is seeing these friend's attitudes towards these trials, they look at the positives, they come closer to our Heavenly Father, they see his love and they grow from these experiences. I have learned so much from them, and they have taught me to appreciate my life and what I have, and to have a better attitude and outlook in life.

As I mention in a previous blog that I have been focusing trying to do more fun and memorable things with Thomas and Dustin, well I have also tried to focus more on ways to make my marriage better, and change my attitude in a lot of things, and I have been happier and more excited about life.

I have also tried to converse with the Lord more and have him in more in my life, too many times I get "too busy" with being a mom that I forget to thank my Heavenly Father for all that he has given me. He truly has blessed me and I have seen him touch my life so much this last month, things have been working out better, things have been clicking to place, basically I just have seen blessings all over that how can I not post how grateful I am to be blessed! I have an amazing husband who is a great companion, supporter, and everything else. I have a beautiful little boy. I have great family and friends. Everyday I get to do what I love, I get to be with my little boy, I get be an artist, and I get to be with my husband, how can I not love life?

Anyway, there are more things I'm grateful for and more I wanted to say but it's getting late, and this cold that I have is making my head stuffy so it's hard to think but I wanted to least say that I'm so grateful to my Heavenly Father and this gospel, the Lord's plan is truly the plan of happiness!

I really should put a picture of Dustin on here too, because he's such a blessing in my life but I didn't get a chance to get a picture with him tonight liked I planned! So maybe another post I will....
