While I am grateful throughout the year for all of my blessings, it is especially during this season that I try to focus my gratitude and be more mindful of all that I have; my family, my faith, my home, my friends, my country, my LIFE! I know that none of this would be possible without my Heavenly Father and His son, Jesus Christ. I know that I don't always have "an attitude of gratitude", but I try each day to think of things that I am grateful for.
