Today, as I thought about what I am THANKFUL for, I thought about places that bring me peace and joy. One of the places I LOVE is the temple. Our church has temples that dot the globe. Our closest temple is in Chicago. I LOVE being at the temple:) It's a place where I can go to escape from the cares and worries of the world. I especially like to go to the temple with my husband. It's fun to be there together. We were married in the Washington D.C. temple. Temples are sacred places. Ordinances in the temple make it possible for families to be together forever:) The temple grounds are beautiful with flowers, trees, and bushes. Just walking outside on the temple grounds is a beautiful experience.

I also really LOVE my home. I am THANKFUL for the peace and love I feel at home. I love the special Spririt I feel here too. We often pray for love and kindness to be in our home.

Don't get me wrong...we are just like any other family with fights and grumpiness. But, for the most part it's a lovely place to be together:)

I also THANKFUL for beautiful Beaches! I love to hear the crash of the waves on the shore. I LOVE the sounds of the seagulls playing and flying about. I love the warmth of the sun on my face and the cool breeze that blows through my hair. I love the sounds, the smells, and the fun we have when we are there together as a family.

Last, but definitely not least, I am THANKFUL to live in America. A place where I am FREE. I love this country! I love the beauty of the land, I love the people who have fought and continue to fight to protect our Freedom, and I love the luxuries I enjoy living here. America is Wonderful and I feel blessed to live here.

Thanks for stopping by. I would love it if you would leave a comment about some of the things you are feeling THANKFUL for today.

Stay Fashionable! Love, Candy
