I am thankful for my Heavenly Father and for everything that he does for me. I am thankful for Jesus Christ, for his atonement and mercy. For His Gospel. For the scriptures, prayer, a living prophet.
I am thankful to live in this wonderful country with its inspired Constitution.
I am thankful that families can be together forever and for temples.
I am thankful for all you awesome people and for your kindness and friendship, even though we haven't met in person.
Happy Thanksgiving to you all! #givethanks
