There is Always Something to Be Thankful for...

Hey hey!
It has been pretty great! Thanks for the package! I loved those pictures with the camel hump day thing ha! I'll also give those things to Judy next week. Thanks so much for sending all of that! It made me pretty happy!
Well it's been a good week overall. It's been real good! There was some more progress with Judy. She again asked a lot of questions, and tried to figure out what is going on. Anyways at the end of the lesson she gave a prayer. The first time we met with her she didn't feel comfortable praying, and hadn't for awhile. She is now comfortable with prayer! It was a huge step for her, and we hope to see continual improvement. It's hard for her to wrap her mind around things, because that's what she is doing. She is trying to have it all make sense, but faith and prayer are a key for that. That's when the knowledge will make sense. We are still trying to help her with that. We know that if she turns to the Lord, and starts seriously studying the Book of Mormon she will start to feel it. Even if you have all the knowledge in the world it won't mean anything compared to the spirit, and spiritual knowledge. It needs to be backed up or it will fail. I still have high hopes for her!

This week I've thought about a lot of different things. With thanksgiving and the whole attitude of gratitude, It's made me reflect and look on all the good around. There is so much that it's not even funny. The big focus in sacrament meeting yesterday wasn't to just count your blessings and just look for those good things. But to have a constant attitude of thanksgiving in all circumstances. It's easy to focus on the bad and the negative. If you really look up and see what's around you it's amazing to see all of the blessings He's given! There is always something to be thankful for In every situation, and I know that I have been blessed more than I deserve! I really do love being here.

Well thanks for all you do I hope you have a great thanksgiving!
Take care!
