Last night we watched the movie "We are Marshall." Have you ever seen it? Definitely a must see in my opinion. It is an emotional film but one that helps you remember the loved ones in your life who you should be thankful for.
1: Thankful for my Husband, Burke. He is so amazing and most perfect for me. Going through this emotional ride of me being pregnant and just dealing with it, I'm sure isn't easy. He reminds me of the good things in life and that everything will be okay through the little things he does everyday. Without him I would be even more of an emotional wreck! The best decision I ever made was on October 13th, 2007, when I said YES! LOVE YOU BABE
2. Baby Hinckley. So thankful to have this little guy inside of me and having the privileged of feeling life everyday. His POWERFUL movements remind me several times a day of the great miracle/gift we are given to create life. I am extremely thankful that we are being trusted by our Heavenly Father to raise this little guy and can't wait to meet him on his BIRTHday! Our love for him grows deeper everyday!
3. My Family. My family is incredible. Of course we have our little corks like everyone else but they accept me for me! Now that we are older and each starting our own families it is so much fun to get together and reminisce about how truly grateful we are for our immediate family and amazing parents who raised us and provided us with a great lifestyle. THANKS!
4. My in-laws. I could have not asked for a better family to marry into. I truly feel like I am PART of the family. I BELONG. It is so nice to marry into a family who has the same beliefs and standards that I am used to, raised a son into an amazing man, and now treat me as one of their daughters! THANKS!
The Ability to LOVE is amazing...we once had a speaker in Church talk about how he learned to love. It took him until his mission to actually know what it feels like. He would always have his companions telling him that they loved him, but he could never tell them back. He had the hardest time expressing love. Today I am most grateful that I can look Burke in the face and tell him I love him and he can say he loves me to...I am excited to be able to tell my son how much I love him and for him to one day say he love me too!
