So grateful

It's a divine way to learn gratitude when you experience the loss of something. After this pregnancy, I find I am so grateful for the things I can once again do that I couldn't do while I was pregnant.

-I can bend down with ease
-I don't have to go to the bathroom every five seconds
-No heartburn!
-I can sleep comfortably
-I can sleep on my stomach!
-I can pick up heavy objects without others' help

Without the hardship of pregnancy I would never realize I should be grateful for these things! It's so easy to take things for granted.

Sometimes when you are going through something hard, it can be difficult to see anything but the hard thing. But everything the Lord gives us in our lives is intended to provide us more joy. More happiness. I am grateful for this divine way to learn and grow.

"For it must needs be, that there is an opposition in all things. If not so, righteousness could not be brought to pass, neither wickedness, neither holiness nor misery, neither good nor bad. Wherefore, all things must needs be a compound in one."  2 Nephi 2:11

"Adam fell that men might be; and men are, that they might have joy." 2 Nephi 2:25
