Gratitude Sunday

Today I want to share with you about the one decision I made today that left me grateful for the rest of the day.

Last night I went to a friend's birthday party and ended up chatting to a couple of friends into the very early hours of this morning. I'm talking 4:30am people!
The birds were chirping as I drove home to go to sleep.... -_-

I eventually got to sleep around 5am and woke up at various times throughout the morning.
As it got closer and closer to the time I was REALLY needing to get up to be able to make it to church on time, I thought "I really just don't want to go today. It won't matter if I miss one week."
That thought, was very unlike me. I actually quite enjoy going to church. It is my reboot for the week.

It was at this very moment, that I thought "No, I need to go, despite how tired I am."
So I dragged myself out of bed.
*Turning point*

Once I arrived at church, I instantly felt the spirit and had one of the most amazing Sunday's I have had in a very long time. 
If I'm completely honest, I've been struggling a lot lately. But there was just so much that was said today that I needed to hear. 
I enjoyed 3 hours of spiritual bliss.

And then I stayed around to go to the CES fireside.
WELL! I have no adequate words for just how amazing it was and how I was touched. 
So add another hour to that spiritual bliss!

My favourite quote from the Elder Holland's talk was:

I am so grateful that I was able to make the decision to get up and go to church, instead of staying in bed to sleep...I wouldn't have had as amazing a day as I did without it.
