A Smorgasborg of Gratefuls

Today I am grateful for Chocolate Cheesecake with a Twix crust. 
I made some last night, and I would have posted a picture, but it came out pretty ugly-lookin' (it was my first cheesecake, okay?  I mean until just a few days ago, I had no clue what a "spring form pan" was.)
It cracked open on top and looked like a chocolate replica of the Grand Canyon. 
Ugly as it was, it still tasted good.
Sinfully good.

I'm grateful for good friends who had us over for grilled chicken, burgers, and homemade salsa.
I'm grateful that they helped us to eat some of that ugly cheesecake.

I'm grateful that while on vacation, Kenadie took regular naps and sleep through the night (for the most part).
 I feel optimistic that as soon as she readjusts to the time change, she will continue her new trick of sleeping like a champ!

 (just because I think she's a doll...)

 I am grateful for church callings.  I'm really, really grateful for church callings and how much they help me to grow and become a better person (I am hoping that the use of positive affirmations will make my new church calling lots of fun and not quite the daunting task or nightmare that it seems to be for many people...can you guess what it is!?)

I am grateful for the Dove chocolates that made my ugly cheesecake so yummy
I am no Paula Dean, so if I can make an ugly cheesecake that is still delish
then you can probably make it look nice and taste good.. 
And if you're thinking,
