Gratitude Catch Up

6:49 PM

Whoooooa where have I been? This week just got away from me friends!

November 4th: I'm grateful for America. Unfortunately, I think so many people take for granted the right to vote, especially people my age. I look at all the people who fought for my right. I look at the women who protested and were arrested to make sure women like me could vote. What a blessing, and a responsibility we have to honor that right!

November 5th: I'm grateful for BYU. I feel so lucky to go to this university. There are too many things about it to list, but seriously I'm so thankful I get to be here. I love my professors, the people, the campus, Provo city, my program, everything!

November 6th: I'm thankful for the scriptures. I'm taking a D and C class right now, and wow. I am so glad I have a road map to help me through this life. The religion classes I have taken at BYU have totally changed the way I view the scriptures. These were real people, real and amazing people. And they wrote to us.

November 7th: I'm grateful for my job. I love BYU Radio and the many opportunities it has given to me. The people I have met there and the things I have learned can't be compared to anything else. I lucked out finding this awesome job!

November 8th: I'm thankful for blogging. Seriously, I have made amazing friends through blogging and I am so grateful for how I've grown through writing. I had the chance to head to The Buzz Reveal Party and it was AMAZING. I met Hailey and Brad Devine and their families, which was incredible to say the least. I may have even told her that I watched her videos every day for the first 3 months that Randy was gone, and it's still a weekly thing. What an amazing night!

Ugly face contest for the win!

November 9th: I'm grateful for my membership in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. We had a wonderful regional conference where many of the speakers talked about God and his love for us, and how to figure out what we are doing with our lives. They were so real and wonderful.

Some highlights:
Sister Whitney's story about her boys buying 100 pesos worth of gelato, and encouraging us to bring home bags of the Lord's sweet and delicious love for ourselves.
Elder Whitney's story about turkeys learning how to fly and then walking home.
Elder Ballard's entire talk, and him straight up saying "if you murmur about the Honor Code then you don't really believe in Jesus Christ." WOW. Powerful words. His grandfatherly advice, and telling the sisters to wear some lipstick and have the "sparkle of the Spirit" in their eyes was also great.

It's been a crazy week, and this month is about to get crazier! The Food Drive starts next week so I will be a BUSY, BUSY bee!

Friends, We have so much to be thankful for. I feel like the luckiest person alive. November is a beautiful month to remind me to be more thankful, and to be happy with what I have.

Happy Sunday friends!
