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.

Hallelujah and Amen Sister. Thanks for the morning devotional. We should all be thinking of the atonement even more this week. See you soon.
