I often joke about how unlucky I am. That the craziest things happen to me because of my bad luck. But in reality, I consider myself to be incredibly lucky. I'm not saying I'm going to go buy some lottery tickets and throw down a grand on the black jack table because I feel so lucky. But I am lucky in the things that matter. I have a family that loves me. I have friends that I can count on. I have a roof over my head and shoes on my feetsies. But you know what else I have and I know I will never ever ever lose?
I have the truth. That truth being a knowledge of a Father in Heaven and a Savior: Jesus Christ. A restored Church. A living Prophet. These are gifts that are given freely to all, if you are willing to accept them. I have. And it is something I will forever be indebted for. But, you know what? I will work every single day of my life to pay that debt.
I just realized, I'm not even that lucky. What I really am is blessed. You are too...just look around and you'll see those blessings...I promise.
