1. I am especially thankful for straws. More specifically those bendy straws. Joe bought a huge package of them a couple of weeks ago. And if it wasn't for those bendy straws Zachary would not have gotten any fluids when he was sick. He refused to drink from any of his cups. I was worried that he wasn't getting enough liquids and Joe whipped out a straw and a cup. Zachary drank so much! This is now his preferred way to drink anything.
2. I'm thankful for the inspired leadership of the Church and for our ward/congregation. I know that these men and women receive guidance from our Heavenly Father.
