What does the prophet say? Have a thankful attitude towards God and man. Express gratitude! Be grateful for all our blessings. A prayerful life will lead to gratitude because expressing it unlocks the windows of heaven and we recognize what we have been given by God. We get to know the Savior through prayers of gratitude as we think of and are thankful for, all He has done for us. Gratitude is the parent of all other virtues. Pride destroys gratitude. Be humble and prayerful offering up prayers of gratitude every day and remember to thank others for the good things they do.
|We and one other couple were the only people sitting in the chapel for the final session of conference Sunday night from 9 until 11 p.m. This was a live broadcast going on at 2-4 p.m. in Utah. The other couple was a counselor in the stake presidency and his wife. He had to be there for the audio visual set up and take down. Interesting once-in-a-lifetime experience. The Sunday 5-7 p.m. session. which was Utah's 10-noon session, was better attended, but many can watch conference at home on the Telly. I repent if having a member of the stake presidency take this picture for us in the chapel was sacrilegious as Karalee laughingly (but kindly) suggested.|

We had a wonderful Family Home Evening tonight with our English Family. I hope to write more on that in the next couple days. Pictures are forthcoming, but missionary work must be done first. Priorities must stay in order. We are having fun. TRA!!
