Ever Thought About

Saying a prayer of only gratitude? It is a really good idea for me right now since there has been a lot of asking going on. I am going to hold off on the supplication and petitioning for at least a prayer a day until Thanksgiving. It isn't much, but I think it will help me focus more on what I DO have! And that is a lot!!!

Jake gave a talk about gratitude in church today! He told about Elder Bednar's Conference talk last month when he spoke about a prayer of only gratitude. My mom helped him write a beautiful talk and he delivered it like a pro! I was so impressed and proud of him. Not a single stumble over a word, he spoke at just the right rate, and didn't even seem nervous! Good job Jake! My mom, dad and I got to sit by his little twin brothers and they kept us entertained for the rest of the meeting.

I'm sad I missed it too! Not that I expected to be invited or anything. I just think that would have been so awesome!

I am so sad we didn't tell you guys.
Everyone commented on how he wasn't nervous and he gave it so perfect. But he did tell me his legs were shaking! So he is normal.
Cute kid-good job!
