Except I'd switch the spiritually and physically around, because physically, I'm pretty banged up, which is making it hard to smile and I do kind of feel like death....although I'm sure death doesn't ache so bad. Haha.
Spiritually, although I feel at a loss of what I'm supposed to do with my life right now, I am thankful that I can still find a reason to smile (even if it's hard!) because I know who I am and I know God's plan....his eternal plan. I know the things that I am supposed to do to please Him and I'm trying my hardest to do those things. That's what keeps me going, knowing that even if I feel like the above in all other ways, my Heavenly Father knows what is right for me and my Savior knows exactly how I feel. Even if I don't have the things I desperately want right now, I know I have better things waiting for me and I'm praying every single minute for the patience to endure well enough to get those things....even if I have to wait a lifetime....I know they're coming. I guess, that's reason enough to be extremely thankful and I am. It's a true blessing to know who you are and to know there's a plan. I am grateful every single moment for that knowledge...and gratitude always seems to help me in my ruts. I'm thankful to have GratiTuesdays back.
