Day 9

I love a beautiful sunset. To me, it is like God is giving us one
final gift of His artwork for the day. A fantastic ending to a hectic
or hard day. Another manifestation of His talent and power.
Another manifestation of His LOVE.

Day 8

Tagen's blessing day

My dad and Tagen playing

I have the best parents. I KNOW I've been blessed because of it. I KNOW that good parents are a great blessing. I love that they play with my daughters and LOVE my daughters. And... I love that my daughters LOVE them right back.

Having great parents is a blessing. One of the best the Lord can give.
Love you Mom and Dad!

I love having a temple so close and accessible.
I'm grateful for the truths learned in the temple
and for the service I am able to give there.
I'm going to attend the temple this week to show my gratitude...
will you?

Day 6

I'm grateful to be given two beautiful daughters who are
healthy and developing normally.
Tagen got her first tooth yesterday. You can see it
peeking out of her gums.
It's amazing to think about all the small details in the
grand design of the human body.
I'm grateful to have a healthy working body that
Heavenly Father created for me.

Day 5

Are you Happy?
"The Lord does not say, 'Be of good cheer if the temperature is comfortable, if you're getting along well economically, if the people you love, love you, if you're in good health, or if your 'bio-rhythms' are up.' The Lord said that we should "Be of Good Cheer." It is not a suggestion, it is a commandment. There is a direct cause-and-effect relationship between being cheerful and reaping the richest spiritual blessings."
~Elder Joe J. Christensen

I'm going to make a conscious decision to CHOOSE to be happy today. To find opportunities where I can CHOOSE to make happiness my reaction. The Lord has told us to "Be of Good Cheer." I'm going to try my best to follow his counsel. I'm grateful for the privilege of CHOICE that has been GIVEN to me. The Lord has blessed us with so much in this life so that we CAN BE HAPPY. I'm going to be happy, are you?

Day 4

I'm grateful for Olivia. She is smart, funny, loving, helpful, quick-witted and totally and completely in love with her daddy. She says so many things that keep us laughing. She's a fantastic big sister who adores her 'baby Tagen.'

Heavenly Father knew that one way we'd find pure joy in this life is by being parents. Our children teach us so much about ourselves, life and the love our Heavenly Father has for each of us. I'm grateful for the joys, challenges and every experience that comes with being a parent to both of my girls.

Simple Beauty.

The sun made this flower shine so beautifully last night...
And so can The Son help each of us shine just as bright and as beautiful if we'll let Him.

Will you let Him?

(I know there are three pics today, but I wanted to see all sides of the bouquet.)

I got these beautiful flowers from my sweet husband yesterday...
Just because.
I'm so grateful to be married to a man who loves me and
who is my best friend.
Love you Brad!

First Day...

© 2009 Carrie Morris

I'm going to try to post a picture a day from my life. Something little to remember my blessings each and every day. Maybe it'll help me be more grateful for all that I have been given in this life.

I'm grateful for the wonderful world we live on and for the beauty that is all around us.
This all didn't happen by chance.
