"Would it spoil some vast eternal plan, If I were a were a wealthy man?"

"Yes Tevye, it might."

"Let us give thanks for what we are and for the circumstances God has given us for our personal journey through mortality." - Dallin H. Oaks

I was sitting here just in a funky mood. I get baby hungry but then keep getting the reminder and prompting that we aren't ready and I start feeling left out.

And that simple phrase, 'Yes Tevye, it might' just hit me. We have been given what we have been given for a reason and only Heavenly Father knows why. We have to accept it and see how we can improve upon it and be a profitable servant.

"When we understand that God offers us opportunities for blessings and blesses us through our own adversities and the adversities of others we can understand why he has commanded us again and again to Thank the Lord thy God in ALL things."

very true. =) I liked that video. I found it online and watched it and thought it was really cute what random people are thankful for. Sometimes life is really difficult to keep your head high and stuff, but....there are many things to be thankful for in the midst of it all.

Thanks for posting this!

I'm constantly asking myself "would it spoil some vast eternal plan if I were to have a man?" I've discovered recently that there are a few things I need to get done as a single first. The video was perfect.
