This post is a bit more serious than my other posts but, I wanted to be grateful today.
Today I was thinking about what it truly means to be happy. I am truly happy every day. Even when things aren’t going exactly the way I hoped. I’m happy because I have an amazing husband that loves me for me. I’m happy because I have a nice place to live and Thomas has a job that he loves. I’m happy because I have an amazing calling at church with such sweet girls. I’m happy because I have the true church in my life. I’m happy because I know I’m trying my hardest at school and its showing. I’m happy because I love everything about my life. I’m peaceful and content with absolutely everything. And I’ve been this way since I met Thomas. I’m so grateful for him, all my family, and friends. Thank you to all of you who have been there for me and contribute to my true happiness. Here is a quote that I found that I love.. "We tend to forget that happiness doesn't come as a result of getting something we don't have, but rather of recognizing and appreciating what we do have" - Frederick Keonig

On a less serious note: I have 3 set in stone A’s for the semester! I have one final left next week for anatomy!! And to keep an A average I have to just make a 50 on the exam. Next Wednesday is my exam and then I’m free for the summer! My last day of work in next week and that is bittersweet.  This is a picture of what I’ll be doing starting next Thursday. Laying out by the pool and reading a few books off my long summer book list :)
