Today is Thanksgiving, which means most of you aren't going to read this, and instead will be eating turkey, watching football, and taking naps.  That being said, it is Thanksgiving, and therefore I have saved my big huge inspiring gratitude post for today.  This is in no way a comprehensive list because that would take me forever to write and take you forever to read and while I know most of you love me, I don't expect you to spend that much time on this.  30 things I am grateful for.

  2. A very comprehensive list. I concur! Hope you had a delightful Thanksgiving. We were with Colyars and had to be at the Stake Center, 'cuz we're now such an enormous family. It lacked intimacy, but the food and company were good. We missed you all and Fifi being here.
