So today I am going to talk about something that means means more to me than anything in this world.............Family.
So a couple of weekends ago I had the opportunity to go home with one of my roommates and spend the weekend with her family. Wow can I just tell you it was the funnest and happiest I have been since I moved here. The minute I walked into her home I could feel how peaceful and loving of an environment it is. On friday night when we got there we all just sat around the kitchen table eating pizza and playing board games. This might seem simple to you but it was so amazing to all just be laughing and smiling and having fun while doing something that was wholesome and uplifting and it was with the people that matter most. We had so much fun all weekend and then on Sunday right before we left we all sat together and the dinner table and had roast and mashed potatoes and rolls and all that yumminess. These are the moments that will last forever and I dont remember a time when I was there that I didn't have a smile on my face. This wonderful just welcomed me and treated me as if I was one of their own. It was so amazing and just what I needed.
Since it is approaching Thanksgiving I want all of you to reflect on all the amazing and wonderful things your family has to offer. I know that every family is messed up or weird or broken in some way cause trust me I have had experience with that. But I also know that all of you can find something that you love about your family. Family is there for a reason its the thing that makes all of this and everything that we go through so worth it. I have to brag for a minute because I was blessed with 2 perfect parents. They have given me so many eternal things in this lifetime and I can honestly say that my parents are my 2 best friends. I would give up anything for my parents. I am so thankful to them and I will never be able to repay them for that. I also love how my parents have been such a great example of love and charity. I have never seen two people more in love and willing to sacrifice everything for the other person. I also have to brag about my siblings. I don't know why heavenly father found me worthy but he blessed me with 5 amazing and perfect siblings. 3 of which get to constantly watch over me and keep me safe in heaven. How grateful I am for all of them! I know that sometimes we may fight or argue and sometimes might yell at each other but we are family and all those tiny tender moments when you see them sacrifice so much for you. Makes all of it so worth it!!!
I love my family so much and i miss them more than words could ever describe!
So wherever you are in the world you should take a moment to tell them you love them and if you can't tell them you love them. than you should write down 3 things that you love about your family or are grateful for.
I hope all of you have a beautiful and wonderful day!
