I sat down to write this this morning and started trying to think what I was thankful for last week. After thinking for a good ten minutes, (yes, I know I could have just looked at my previous posts, but what's the point of being thankful for something if you can't remember what you are thankful for?) I finally realized that I didn't post my thankful thursday last week. For the first time in about 7 years, I have changed my morning schedule and it is throwing everything off. Every morning since we have been married, I woke up when James did, took my shower, got ready for the day, and ate breakfast. Now that I have a 3+ hour lunch break, I have been sleeping in, waking up a few minutes before I have to call into work, brush my hair, and throw on some makeup. Then on my lunch break I come home and work out for 2 hours and then get ready for the day. I am behind on laundry, dishes, ironing, everything else. So I think thankful thursday easily slipped my mind!
Before, I forget about this week.... I am thankful for the Atonement.
Since it's Easter time, I have been reflecting a lot about Christ and his life. There was a wonderful general conference talk by Elder Holland about Christ. It really made me realize how much he went through for me! I can't wait to get the Ensign so I can read this talk again. I am thankful that the Atonement is intensely personal and uniquely crafted for our own individual circumstances and situations.
