i've been wanting your undivided attention

1. I am thankful that when Somebody asks me how he can help (while I'm making dinner) and I respond that mostly I just want him to wash the dishes, he always agrees.
2. I am thankful for a laptop and wireless internet access.
3. I am thankful for hot showers and cold drinking water.

“And they did sing praises unto the Lord; yea, the brother of Jared did sing praises unto the Lord, and he did thank and praise the Lord all the day long; and when the night came, they did not cease to praise the Lord.”
-Ether 6:9

“Both abundance and lack [of abundance] exist simultaneously in our lives, as parallel realities. It is always our conscious choice which secret garden we will tend … when we choose not to focus on what is missing from our lives but are grateful for the abundance that's present—love, health, family, friends, work, the joys of nature, and personal pursuits that bring us [happiness]—the wasteland of illusion falls away and we experience heaven on earth.”
-Sarah Ban Breathnach, in John Cook, comp., The Book of Positive Quotations, 2nd ed. (2007), as quoted by Thomas S. Monson
