Gratitude Brings Heightened Awareness

I read this LDS Gems thought for the day and thought it was so wonderful that I'd share it with everyone!

"Gratitude is a Spirit-filled principle. It opens our minds to a universe permeated with the richness of a living God. Through it, we become spiritually aware of the wonder of the smallest things, which gladden our hearts with their messages of God's love. This grateful awareness heightens our sensitivity to divine direction. When we communicate gratitude, we can be filled with the Spirit and connected to those around us and the Lord. Gratitude inspires happiness and carries divine influence."

(Bonnie D. Parkin, "Gratitude: A Path to Happiness," Ensign, May 2007, 35)

The reflux thing has been quite a complex issue. He just decided to turn blue a few times.He's been in the hospital twice with it... do you still have my number? I'm more than willing to share info. We may end up taking Tanner down to Shands this summer for a second opinion.

Thanks Lindsey! You have been doing something something just as great, probably far greater. You have a happy family and I'm sure it has alot to do with your hard work at home. I'm actually relieved to be finished and stay home, too. But if it(college)is something you want to do in the future, don't pass it by.

I look forward to seeing more baby pics!
