Alma 17:13

21 November 2012

And it came to pass when they had arrived in the borders of the land of the Lamanites, that they separated themselves and departed one from another, trusting in the Lord that they should meet again at the close of their harvest; for they supposed that great was the work which they had undertaken. (Book of Mormon, Alma, Chapter 17)

E aconteceu que, tendo chegado às fronteiras da terra dos lamanitas, separaram-se, confiando no Senhor que voltariam a reunir-se no fim de sua colheita; porque acreditavam que grande era a obra que haviam empreendido.

Y sucedió que cuando hubieron llegado a las fronteras de la tierra de los lamanitas, se separaron unos de otros, confiando en el Señor en que se volverían a reunir al fin de su cosecha; porque creían que la obra que habían emprendido era grande.

And I’m here in AZ with them.

6 November 2012

This month is so very lovely because so many good souls are focusing on and sharing what they are thankful for.

Back in November 2009, I did a blog post everyday on what I was thankful for at the time. Now, many people are sharing their thoughts via Instagram and Facebook, me included, but I thought I’d come back to my blessed blog to talk about gratitude.

First of all, I don’t know what happened to me and why I became such a blogging bum. I guess a lot of it started with the illness and near death of my computer, Lucy. She’s still not well. I’ll need to buy a new one soon. And when I joined in the iPhone revolution, I also felt less need and desire to blog. Weird.

I like being able to look back and see all my thoughts and moments captured. Good times here with happychelsea.

Anyway… gratitude. Gratidão.
I’m happy when I’m grateful.
I’m grateful when I’m happy.

“”to live with gratitude ever in our hearts is to touch heaven.””
-President Thomas S. Monson
