Today I was grateful for beautiful snow and my children's first snow day off of school. It is a rare thing in Utah!
Elisa spent morning until dark with her friends so I didn't get a photo of her in the snow. We got stuck a couple of times when driving, but luckily were able to wiggle-jiggle free.
I am also thankful for this notebook. It's just a composition notebook that I glued a picture of Jesus on the front of that I have had for quite a while now. I take it to church and firesides and keep notes on the speakers and quotes, but also write down inspirations or promptings that I get (at church or home)--from call Carrie and offer to babysit to teach this in Family Home Evening next week. And, of course, I write things I want to post about. I was reading through some of it this week and was reminded of so many beautiful things that touched me and I was so glad that I wrote them down. And there is soooo much in there that I haven't yet posted.
A big thing I've been grateful for is that although my father had a stroke last week (really scary!), he is doing okay. He had to stay in the hospital 2 nights and is now at home. He can talk and walk and although his left side is still a bit weak, he can move everything. We are so grateful that it was a relatively small stroke and that he is okay. We love you, Dad!
I found these two versions, one in English, one in Spanish, about how to spot if someone is having a stroke. You might not be able to make it through the whole thing, but they're kinda amusing while they are educational.
