5- I am grateful for Tropicana Orange Tangerine juice which transports me from a cold day in Utah to a sunny day in Arizona in my grandparent's backyard with each sip.
6- Kleenex Lotion Tissue. I know using tissues instead of handkerchiefs is wasteful, but my nose is grateful and so is my already tall stack of dirty laundry.
7- Kids that are in bed by 8:00pm when we are all sick.
8- My Grandma Donna, who my kids refer to as "Grammy Donnie". She is very sick right now and I pray multiple times a day for her comfort.
(Grandma and I this summer)
9- My friend Autumn. Our moms met when her mom was pregnant with her, so I've literally known her since birth. It is her birthday today. She is one of those friends who I can go a whole year without seeing and still tell her everything when I do.

10- Girls' Night Out is tomorrow. Jen and I are going to see a movie. I think it's just going to be the two of us and that's alright with me. Maybe we'll do dinner before or dessert after.
11- I'm grateful that Janette & RoyAl and their four beautiful kids were able to come over and spend the day with us on Saturday. We met them in Hawaii when we were all without kids and though they only live an hour away we don't see them often.

12- To be able to be the teacher of Jonah's joyschool preschool this week.
13- For a warm, comfortable home.
14- Unlimited long distance phone calls.
15- The internet (which I am trying to limit to approx 30 mins a day now).
16- The Bible.
17- The Restored Gospel of Jesus Christ (aka: The LDS Church).
