"Silent gratitude isn't much use to anyone." ~G.B. Stern
I have decided to start this gratitude blog for several reasons. I have found that lately I am rarely grateful for all that I have and find reasons to feel ungrateful. I have also seen, via facebook and other sites that I am not alone. Many of us find so many reasons to complain. I hope this blog inspires us, even for one moment of the day, to say "thank you" for even one blessing in our life. My goal with this blog is to share at least one moment of gratitude, even on my very worst day. I hope that you will feel inspired to share with us what you are grateful for and together we can help lift and change the way we feel about our everyday lives and be a more grateful people.

Today I am grateful to have the blessing of prayer. Last night my 2 year old ran a temperature of 102.5. After giving her some medicine and putting a cool cloth on her head, I prayed. I then woke my husband up to give her a blessing. Her temperature went down and we were both more calm. She was then able to go back to sleep and so were we. I am grateful for prayer, for the priesthood and for a husband who is able to give my children blessings whenever they are needed.
