Thankful Thursday

I really do have so much to be thankful for. Sometimes it's hard to choose just one thing each week. But this week, one thing stood out to me: I'm thankful that I was able to drive home in that snow storm on Sunday. Oh the irony!!

I'm not kidding. I'm seriously grateful for the challenge I faced on Sunday: driving, white-knuckled, for hours in a snow storm just trying to get home. Number one, it gave me more confidence in my driving-in-the-snow abilities. Now I know I can drive, no problem, in any snow situation Utah hits me with. (I kinda felt that way already, but know I know I can do it!) Number two, it opened my eyes for the billionth time to how sweet and patient and gentle and calm my husband is. The whole time I was driving he was alert and would help me decide whether or not to pass people, etc. He also had his GPS out and would warn me every time the road was expected to curve up ahead. He's the best. PS - The road conditions and visibility were 10x worse than this picture:

Well, at least it was worth the trip, right?? :) Heehee. Sorry that it was such a nightmare to get home, that's no fun. But we were glad to see you both! :)
