from the beginning the fight we were winning

1. I am grateful for a refrigerator full of delicious leftovers.
2. I am grateful that yesterday was the perfect combination of prepping, cooking, cleaning, playing, hugging, eating, cleaning, napping, laughing, talking, and loving.
3. I am grateful for optimism.

"And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by him."
Colossians 3:17

"You could have an experience with the gift of the Holy Ghost today. You could begin a private prayer with thanks. You could start to count your blessings, and then pause for a moment. If you exercise faith, and with the gift of the Holy Ghost, you will find that memories of other blessings will flood into your mind. If you begin to express gratitude for each of them, your prayer may take a little longer than usual. Remembrance will come. And so will gratitude."
-Henry B. Eyring, "Remembrance and Gratitude," Ensign, Nov. 1989
