Grateful for:

1. General Conference: I look forward to this weekend because of the Spirit that is present and the words that are spoken. It was such a wonderful experience to participate in the Solemn Assembly. It was so neat to stand together and all raise our hands in support of dear President Monson.

2. My husband's cooking skills: There are many time during the week and on Sundays where I am just too tired to cook. On those days Adam is more than willing to take over and whip up something delicious. It is a nice break!!

3. Food Saver: This baby is a miracle worker!! It is my new favorite kitchen gadget. It vacuums all the air out and then seals the bag around any food item that you want to freeze. I have done salmon, steaks, chicken, strawberries, peaches. So now we have a freezer full of food, ready to eat, and also safely protected from freezer burn!

4. Yogi Herbal Tea: As most of you already know, I have difficulty sleeping at nights. I should go to a doctor, but don't want to become dependent on sleeping pills. Last week while browsing the organic section at our grocery store I found this tea. I decided to give it a shot, and have been sleeping like a baby ever since! It is a wonderful flavor of lavender and has been working great! I drink 1 cup right before bed, and have been able to fall asleep easier and stay asleep longer!! An added bonus-each tea bag has a saying on it, last nights was "Be proud of who you are!", so I not only get sleep but happy thoughts!

5. Music: Each Sunday morning Adam and I have tried to make the habit of turning on "Sounds of the Sabbath," as we get ready for church. I love the spirit that music brings into our home. I love music-i am not very picky about what is playing as long as it makes me feel good. I am so grateful for the people who very willingly share their musical talents for us to enjoy!

A husband that cooks?!? Never heard of it.
And I wholeheartedly agree with your first one. Love Pres Monson.
