Instagram: 30 Days of Gratitude Photo Challenge 1-12

Remember how earlier this month I was lucky enough to get an iPhone?  I’m loving it!  I’m also loving being on Instagram.  It took me a few days to jump into the 30 Day Photo Challenge focusing on gratitude, putting me several days behind, but I couldn’t resist this challenge to show my thankful heart this month through images.  Even if I did the 2011 version, I was still happy to participate.  
Over then next few days I’m going to share my photos and thoughts on gratitude for these specific things! 

Day 1: favorite food: grateful for all natural peanut butter! With endocrine problems and a forced low carb diet this stuff keeps me alive and I eat it almost everyday! 
Day 2: smile: I don’t think we’ll ever have better smiles than the moment we entered the world as husband and wife. 
Day 3: happiness: I’m grateful to know the source of true happiness! I’m also grateful to have parents who taught me it spiritually and academically.
Day 4: leaves : there are 3 seasons in AZ; hot, hotter than H-E double hockey sticks, and a very long fall. I am grateful for perfect weather and changing leaves

Day 5: morning sky : thankful for beautiful sunrises and sunsets!
Day 6: books: grateful for brilliant parents who let us choose to earn things by reading pages or through child labor. They have 6 readers who learned to make $ using their brains. Also grateful for my Undergrad in English at BYU, greatly shaped who I am today!
Day 7: something funny :my niece wearing a bunny costume a size too small all thanksgiving & complaining of a “bunny wedgie” grateful for our hilarious 26 nieces and nephews
Day 8: favorite color : oh turquoise how I love all shades of thee!

Day 9: inspiring person : thankful for a mom who showed up to every soccer game, assembly, piano recital, and still comes to all my races, church talks, and events. I am lucky to have one of the best! 
Day 10: nature :there’s nothing quite like the AZ sunsets I get to see every night! 
Day 11: something old : grateful to be a homeowner and to have this old brick wall in my home, it’s my favorite part!
Day 12: hands : thankful for soft ginger snap molasses cookies and hands who know how to bake them!
