365 gratitude day 231

I'm grateful that mom and dad Kershaw are here. They make it a point to come see us once a year, which I really appreciate. They are fun and help in so many ways! I like having them around.

365 gratitude day 230

I'm so grateful for Corbin. Today is his birthday, and I've reflected a little about how he had changed my life. He is generally a happy person (as I'm writing this, he is screaming and crying at daddy. Haha) and he loves to make people laugh. I love his snuggles and that he likes to be close.

I'm grateful for my baby who isn't really a baby anymore.

365 gratitude day 228

I'm so grateful for inspired gospel doctrine teachers. Joseph Picon studied the war chapters in Alma and found ways to make them applicable to our own lives! It was such an inspired lesson.

365 gratitude day 227

I'm so grateful that mom was willing to drive all the way to salt lake just to help me get through baggage claim. I wasn't feeling well, and it was so wonderful to have her take the kids and help at baggage claim.

I'm also so grateful that Jonathan parked the car so he could help me get my baggage when we arrived in Chicago.

365 gratitude day 222-226

I didn't write while I was in Utah. But it sufficeth to say that in the 222 day and the 223 day and 224, 225, 226 day there was much gratitude in the land.

365 gratitude day 221

Today I'm so grateful for Tony, and others who helped me today. I was so overwhelmed at Scarlett's blessing, the kids were exhausted, and I couldn't last more than 60 seconds without one or both of them completely melting down. So Tony took Corbin for the rest if the night, which made it possible for me to socialize and catch up with cousins and stuff.

365 gratitude day 220

I'm grateful that the kids did so well on the flight. I'm grateful that we made it down to Amy's without too much trouble. Corbin was exhausted, and thus I was stretched to my limits trying to get him to go where we need.

I'm grateful that we don't miss a beat, when my family gets together. I love them so much.

365 gratitude day 219

Today I'm grateful that I get to go to Utah tomorrow! I have missed my family like crazy the last few months. It's hard for me to live so far away.

365 gratitude day 218

Today I'm grateful for the ease of communication. My family had a small emergency and I was able to communicate with everyone involved, which set my mind at ease and helped me feel not as helpless being so far from them.

365 gratitude day 217

I'm grateful for modern medicine! I'm grateful that there are doctors to help when needed

365 gratitude day 216

I'm grateful for all the support of my friends and family.

I'm grateful for my hard working husband. He stayed home from work today and helped unpack. We are basically settled now, because he just kept unpacking. All.Day.

365 gratitude day 214

I'm grateful for the warm welcome we had at church today. It was so awesome to come back to a ward we love so much!

I'm also grateful for the Jensen's. They had us over for dinner and we had a really good time catching up with them! We love them!

365 gratitude day 213

I'm grateful that we are back in Indiana, and I'm grateful that it feels like we are home. It's so wonderful to feel like we have a place we call home as a family.

365 gratitude day 212

We had dinner with our BYU intern friends, one of the wives is awesome. (Actually the only BYU intern wife I really got to know), Corbin absolutely loves her, and it's so cute to see! I'm grateful for our friendship, and I hope we can continue to be friends after we leave.
Her husband is Korean, and made Korean bbq... mmmm I really love Korean food!

365 gratitude day 211

I'm grateful today was such a good day! Yesterday was horrible, abd I'm grateful that I can apply the atonement and make this day fresh, and clean.

Side note: General mills likes to have fun! They had a huge carnival today for everyone who worked in Jonathan's building and their families. Everything was free, and we are talking inflatables, pony rides, food, treats.... it was a lot of fun! The reason? It's the end of summer, why not?

365 gratitude day 210

I'm grateful that I realized again how much the Lord is willing to bless us. We had an incident where we felt prompted to do something generous, and less than 24 hours later we were blessed in the same way, with the same thing we just gave.

365 gratitude day 209

I'm grateful that we spent some time outside. We went th a park today and the kids seemed to do so much better after they had some time to run around without me dictating what they could and couldn't do.

365 gratitude day 207

Today was such a fun Saturday. We had some good, fun things planned with the kids, and then we went on a date. That was way overdue. It feels good to just walk with Jonathan and hold his hand. I like him.

365 gratitude day 206

I'm grateful that the Olympics started. This is such a fun way to rally around our country. It's also great to see people so good at what they do. I'm excited for the coming weeks.

365 gratitude day 205

I'm grateful that we have people willing to put our kids to bed so we can go to the temple.

The temple was so wonderful today, I feel like I had better prepared myself,  so I felt the Spirit more strongly.

I'm so grateful friends. They make life so much more pleasant. I'm grateful that I have made a few here that I really like and admire.

365 gratitude day 203

Today I hit rock bottom. I'm so grateful for the atonement, Heavenly Father who is always there, for my mom who helps me get through, and for this quote that I read today.

365 gratitude day 202

I'm grateful for sunshine. This world would be a much worse off place to be if it was cloudy all the time. I feel much better when sunshine comes pouring through my windows.
Today was a hard day,  but it would have been worse if it were overcast.
