Thankful Thursday

Today I am THANKFUL for BEAUTIFUL daughters, that are all around AMAZING young women:)

Today the middle school they attend gave out Merit Awards. Merit Awards are given to students that go above and beyond in the classroom. These students emulate what the teachers would like to see in all of their students both in academic achievements and also in Character.

They chose 30 students out of 500 to receive this award. Kirk and I are truly blessed with wonderful girls. Both Hadyn and Briley received a Merit Award.

They're teachers wrote beautiful and wonderful things about each one of them.
Sometimes as parents it's nice to feel like you might actually be doing something right.
For Kirk and I, this was one of those moments. We are
THANKFUL to a Heavenly Father who leads and guides us as parents. We need all of the help we can get! :)

Briley and Hadyn we love you and are so proud of the Young Women you are becoming!

Proud Momma and Daddy.

Later today I get to attend a Parent Teacher Conference for Macie.
Hopefully she will get the same kind of praise from her teacher. We'll have to see. She's a funny and sweet girl. She can be a bit squirmy and talkative too. I'm interested to hear what her teacher has to say;)
Macie I'm THANKFUL for you too! Your hugs, your kisses, your smile, and your incredible wit!

Another thing I am THANKFUL for this Thursday is the Ensign Magazine.

A couple of days ago I got our November Ensign. The Ensign is a monthly magazine produced by our church. November's Ensign is special because, it has all of the talks printed from our General Conference Meetings. General Conference is Meetings broadcast from Utah where we get to hear talks and instruction from our Prophet and Church Leaders. I am thankful for Leaders that both inspire and direct us.

I am particularly THANKFUL for the "Forget Me Not" Talk.
By Dieter F. Uchtdorf
The above is a free printable I found online relating to his talk. His talk reminds us as women to Never Forget that we truly are precious daughters in God's Kingdom.
I wish every woman in the world could read this talk! It's really AMAZING!
You can find the talk here

What are some of the things that you are THANKFUL for today?
Leave me a comment. I am also THANKFUL for comments! They sort of make my day! :)

Stay Fashionable! Love, Candy


  1. Congratulations to Hadyn and Briley!

  2. I am thankful for Facebook and blogs that we can connect with one another on a level that we might not achieve in a brief "hi" while passing in the hall at a school event. The positive encouragement is precious to me.
