Those things for which we are thankful

So often when we say our prayers and say what we are thankful for (teeth, moms, freedom) we forget some of the small things that are just as important. What I'd like to do is suggest some things that you can start incorporating in your daily prayers that you may have overlooked. You can thank me later.

  • That tri-tip steaks are not made from Rhinoceros meat
  • Circulation
  • That someone else may have corns on their feet, but you don't
  • Meatloaf (the meat, not that loaf, the singer)
  • Stationery
  • Bouillon cubes
  • Lex De Azevedo
  • That dot matrix printers are now only used at hotels in Mexico and not around here
  • The laughter of a child
  • That you don't have triplets
  • Things that are fortified
  • That Jimmer is a Mormon
  • That you don't chew like a horse
  • That the stain came out
  • Plenty of parking whenever you go to Fillmore Utah
  • Wink, wink (I think you know what I'm getting at, here)
  • Soft rock
  • Sunsets, or your wife's clavicle -- You choose
  • Your properly formed ears 
  • Vivint. (Just kidding about this one!)
  • That someone else made this quilt

Pray on, brothers and sisters. And just as a reminder, do not direct your prayers to Mitt Romney. I think we've been over this before.

You need to quit obsessing about that stain. It's over. No one else knows.

What did I ever do for entertainment before I found this blog? My only complaint is that there are not nearly enough posts.

Alas, I cannot give thanks that we don't have triplets. They turn five next week! A twelve and ten-year-old brother, and a seven-year-old sister will join in the singing of "Happy Birthday"! So those praying for guidance on going for that final fourth child, to make the family complete? I recommend a week of fasting (from food and sleep) before you pray. :)
