Grateful Girl!

I am a blessed woman.  I mean it.  I have so many things in my life to be grateful for and I could sing it to the mountains with how happy I am right now.  One of my closest, best friends called me on Friday to tell me that she had just gotten engaged.  Tonight we were finally able to talk and I could hear the WHOLE story... WOW.  I am just overwhelmed with excitement for her and the choices she has made in her life that led her to her fiance.  I don't know why, but I just got off the phone feeling SO happy that she's chosen to share this special time in her life with me.  I've had a handful of really close friends get married recently and I feel SO blessed that they wanted me there - that I was able to share in their joy. 

Another one of my friends received her "surprise" mission call (surprise as in almost  NO ONE knew she had put her papers in till she got her call!) and will be going to my home mission in Virginia!  I'm freaking out with excitement for her and for the mission.  First, she is going to be SUCH an incredible missionary.  I mean, this is a girl who is one of the most genuine, kind, funny, talented, and accepting individuals that I know... It's not an exaggeration with any of those adjectives, mind you.  She's going to rock the mission field out there and just be a good influence for some many of my old friends out there.  Second, finally someone from here will understand why I freak out about Cristian's Pizza, Bodo's Bagels, Monticello, Fall on the East coast, and just Virginia in general.  Haha!

Altogether, these things among many other little things from my week made me realize how blessed I am.  I have SO much to be grateful for, and my Heavenly Father to thank for all of these blessings.  I am grateful for the big things like shelter, food, a car that runs well, clothing (a LOT of clothing...), the gospel, amazing friends and family, my education, and a job that I love.  I am grateful for the little things, like glitter toes, cute boots, my pet hamster, a cell phone, the snowy mountains, jean jackets, adorable jewelry, scarves (a LOT of scarves...), pinterest, laughter, and for Hunger Games week - haha... I'm just a grateful girl right now.  I hope that as my week continues, no matter what comes my way, I can maintain an attitude of gratitude and remember how much my Father in Heaven and my Savior love me.

Sidenote:  I am also really grateful for this video... I haven't laughed this hard in a LONG while. A LONG while!  Hahahahaha....


Song of the Day:  I am love with this song my friend, Chad, sent me.  Here is The Wanted with "Lightening."  I didn't put the video because upon watching it, it is RACY!  Haha... Enjoy!

I am SO GRATEFUL that you have posted that video. You have no idea how much I need to see that, due to an inside family joke that involved my sister figuring out the meaning of MPH when she was a teenager. THANK YOU.
