Thaaaaaaaaaaaaanksgiving!

I called the family out in Ohio and got to talk to Mom, Briana, Dad, Kimmy, Thad and Jenny Dragoo for a while. *No matter where I am in the world, Thanksgiving to me, is to think and talk about family. In it is everything I am to be grateful. I talked to Austin, left messages with Amber, Keith and Elise and felt so grateful for them and the associations I've had with them in the capacity I have had through the years to make up so much of who I've become!
*Music has to be a part of any holiday or celebration. (Ether 6:9; Ps. 47:6 & 7)
*Prayer belongs to everyday as a constant reliance and thanks to who gave us everything! (2 N. 32:9)
*Reverence for those who lived and fought before us. Dad sent an email from Abraham Lincoln back in the 1800's about why celebrate Thanksgiving yesterday, and I thought it was a perfect start to my roommate and my day. How fortunate we are to live in a free country! We should be so grateful for the freedoms we enjoy!
*Humility should be in our every moment as we go through the day. If we are constantly thinking about how we are grateful for everything more than what we are, how can that not be every part?
Lastly: *Love. I was listening to this song today by the Celtic Women Send Me A Song, (while in my "corpse pose" doing Yoga), when a line in the song said, "... Love must never hold tight, but let go..." Moroni 7:45-47 (45) "And charity suffereth long, and is kind, and envieth not, and is not puffed up, seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil, and rejoiceth not in iniquity but rejoiceth in the truth, beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things. (46) Wherefore, my beloved brethren, if ye have not charity, ye are nothing, for charity never faileth. Wherefore, cleave unto charity, which is the greatest of all, for all things must fail— (47) But charity is the pure love of Christ, and it endureth forever; and whoso is found possessed of it at the last day, it shall be well with him."
Why did our Heavenly Father allow Christ to suffer the greatest pain of all? Why does our Father in heaven let us go through things that may hurt us or cause us pain? I am grateful for my Father in heaven's love for me. And now see more clearly the love my own father and mother on earth have for me. They have loved me so much to let me go, and in-turn want to come back to them any chance I get!
WHAT an opportunity we have to be grateful!
A hope to all of you, family and friends: enjoyed yesterday to the "fullest!"
