Sometimes I complain.

Today I looked at some pictures on my computer, some from Eastern, some from St. Louis and a couple from my mission.  A few from some vacations.  I miss these times. I was a little sad.  I could wallow in self-pity.  But, at least I had these times!  And although there are a couple things that don't excite me about my life, I have a million and a half things to be grateful and thankful for.  I will name 5. (in no order)

1. Jesus loves me.
2. I have a roof over my head.
3. I have the opportunity to attend college.
4. I'm healthy.
5. The Lakers are out of the playoff (RIP Phil J)

"It is not a sacrifice to live the gospel of Jesus Christ. It is never a sacrifice when you get back more than you give. It is an investment. And the living of the gospel of Jesus Christ becomes a greater investment than any of which we know because its dividends are eternal and everlasting" (Gordon B. Hinckley, Teachings of Gordon B. Hinckley [1997], 567-68)
