it would knock me to the floor if i wasn't there already

1. I am thankful for friends who, no matter how long (or short) a time you have actually known them, it feels like you have known them forever and feel as comfortable with them as if they were family.
2. I am thankful for slow cookers that allow lunch/dinner to be ready and waiting for us when we get home from church.
3. Although I frequently complain about the time and expense of the process, I am thankful that we have the ability to extend Somebody’s eligibility to stay and work in the U.S.

“If you never learned the lesson of thankfulness, begin now. Sum up your mercies; see what provision God has made for your happiness, what opportunities for your usefulness, and what advantages for your success.”
-Ida S. Taylor

“Greatness is not always a matter of the scale of one's life, but of the quality of one's life. True greatness is not always tied to the scope of our tasks, but to the quality of how we carry out our tasks whatever they are. In that attitude, let us give our time, ourselves, and our talents to the things that really matter now, things which will still matter a thousand years from now.”
-Spencer W. Kimball, "A Gift of Gratitude," Tambuli, Dec 1977
