I love the song "Pocket Full of Sunshine" by Natasha Bedingfield. It makes me feel happy. I have really taken the time to count my blessings this past week and a half and it has really lifted my spirits. Last fast Sunday we did a family fast for me. My whole family fasted and I felt their prayers and strength. This whole last week I have felt their strength and my Heavenly Father's arms around me. It was so overwhelming, in a good way. My MS has been pretty bad lately. I am over extended right now so the stress is taking it's toll on my body. So I had been feeling depressed. After that fast, I focused more on all the wonderful things in my life. As I started that list, I came to see that it is SOOOOO much longer than the trials I face. I want all of you I have felt your prayers, love and strength. I am so grateful that the Lord makes it so we don't have to go through this life alone. There are so many things that can bring us down if we let them. However, there is one major thing that can bring us eternal happiness and that is the gospel! What a blessing! I am so grateful for my pockets and pockets and pockets full of sunshine!
