My fellow brothers and sisters,
2- Service brings Joy.3- Our Heavenly father is only a prayer away.
This week was the Longest week, yet the shortest week. It was long because our investigator pool is getting smaller. Since Trump won the elections, most of the illegal Hispanics are working 24/7 to try to save up some money. which means they are never home... So we moved our time over to finding legal Hispanics! And we have had some great success! The week was short, because I, like many of you have probably done, started to be more grateful for the many blessings that we have in our life. Though as i thought about it and as i listened to people give talks during sacrament meeting, one of the speakers shared this quote from the Prophet Thomas S. Monson in the May 2000 Ensign:
I thought that the phrase "an attitude of gratitude" is applicable to not only thanksgiving, but ours lives as well. I am so grateful for all that I have. And it being that on the 3rd of December I get officially fat and old by turning 20, here is 20 things/lessons that I have learned throughout my 20 years of living that i am grateful for:
1- The Atonement is the greatest gift of all.
4- Family is important. They wont always be around.
5- My mom REALLY does do a LOT!
6- Avoid comparing yourself to others.
7- Magnify your calling.
8- The best leader is a Follower.
9- Seeing Others Happy makes me happy.
10- Be yourself!
11- Dads always have the BEST advice.
12- The Sabbath is a delight.
13- How to Crochet.
14- Take care of your back.
15- Laughter makes all days better.
16-The Book of Mormon not only answers the questions to the soul, but is the best spiritual doctor ever! (right behind the savior)
17- I really love ice-cream.
18- There is always a special bond between Mothers and Sons.
19- I live in a beautiful world.
20- I am a child of God. And he truly does love me.
We are all so truly blessed! And I am grateful for everything that I have been aloud to learn in this life. i am grateful for the people that I have been able to grow up with and meet along my journey. I love you all so much! Have the best of a week and enjoy your Christmas Holiday!
Much love :)
