Ever since General Conference I have had President Monson's talk on my mind "An Attitude of Gratitude." I loved this quote that came from his talk.
"Do material possessions make us happy and grateful? Perhaps momentarily, However those things which provide deep and lasting happiness and gratitude are the things which money cannot buy: our families, the gospel, good friends, our health, our abilities, the love we receive from those around us. Unfortunately, these are some of the things we allow ourselves to take for granted... A grateful heart, then, comes through expressing gratitude to our Heavenly Father for His blessings and to those around us for all they bring into our lives. This requires conscious effort-at least until we have truly learned and cultivated and attitude of gratitude."
A couple of weeks ago for FHE we made gratitude wreaths. The girls wrote down everything they were grateful for. It was fun to think about all of our many blessings. President Monson's talk is so true. It is easy to get caught up in all of the materialistic things of the world, but the things I am most grateful for money can not buy.
