Week 6 Goal: Gratitude

(There is no update from last week because well we are an already pretty affectionate couple and this goal was met before we even were married.  :)  We like to cuddle.)

 As written in the book:
"Goal:  Focus on your blessings.  As you go about each day, pay special attention to what you are thankful for, and try to maintain an attitude of gratitude."

This reminds me of my "Thankful" posts I did in November.
Since we're already to the middle of the week, I'll sum up the things that I have been thankful for each day.

Sunday:  We had Stake Conference* at church and the theme was the Temple.  It made me think just how grateful I am to live so close.  We need to make a better effort to go to the temple more often since the distance is more like a hop, skip, and a jump away.  

Monday:  When my husband gets up and goes to work, I get up so  I can make up a breakfast fruit smoothie and put together a lunch.  I was exhausted and my wonderful hubby told me to sleep in.  In fact, he let me do this the next day too.  I lurve him.  : )  Doesn't seem like a big deal, but I was grateful for that extra sleep all the same.  (Note:  Everyday, I do make him breakfast and lunch, he ALWAYS thanks me for making it.  What a simple thing that just brightens my day!)

Tuesday:  COUPONS!!!!  I had received a coupon from Maurices for $10 off a $50 purchase.  Since next week is my birthday I wanted to find something cute to wear.  AND I DID!  Coupons are my favorite.  I also had some coupons for Costco.  I won't be buying toilet paper and paper towels for months!  It's the simple things in life.  ; )

Wednesday (today):  I'm grateful the sun is shining its magnificent rays today!  I've missed it.  Whenever the sun is out I feel like I have more energy. 


I'll try and keep up with writing these down the rest of the week.  Life is always crazy and I'm also a little on the lazy side of it right now.  But you all still love me right?

What are you GRATEFUL for today?

*One of the things I love about the LDS religion is that it is incredibly organized.  A stake is a large area for example a town.  This is broken down into wards and branches or smaller areas and neighborhoods within that stake.  Wards and branches typically meet on their own, but twice a year the entire stake meets together for a conference.  Thus, Stake Conference.)

  1. I'm a sucker for coupons. Whenever I get a good deal on something, I seem to enjoy it that much more.

  2. I'm grateful for SLEEP. I just want some...so maybe if I am grateful, I will get some more!
