I decided to follow Kika's example and am going to express my gratitude for little things and big things that happened in my life. Since this is the 13th day of the month, I'm going to try and put down 13 of the things I am grateful for. There you go:

1. I am grateful for my Savior Jesus Christ, and for His infinite Atonement, that makes it possible for me to go back to Heavenly Father's presence someday.

2. I am grateful for my parents, who are WONDERFUL and so good to me... "I, Helga, having been born of goodly parents, therefore I was taught somewhat in all the learning of my father (and mother); and having seen many afflictions in the course of my days, nevertheless, having been highly favored of the Lord in all my days." They are my rock and my life.

3. I am grateful for my friends. All of them who give me love and support, and all the ones who surprise me with the craziest text messages during the day, like Kika: Eh babalu? Eh big big? hehehehe... Love you Kikete!

4. I am grateful for attending a wonderful school, that really teaches me how to be a true and faithful disciple.

5. I am grateful for the knowledge I have on many subjects. I feel so smart!

6. I am grateful for my bishop. He is an amazing man, so loving and caring for the ward members!

7. I am grateful for the sun and the skies... There's nothing better than contemplating a beautiful clear sky with the sun shining...

8. I am grateful for my jobs, both at the Grounds and at the Career Services. They both give me an opportunity to serve and to grow somehow.

9. I am grateful for my roomates. They are so fun and drama-free! I love them!

10. I am grateful for people who contribute to the BYU-Idaho scholarship fund. Thanks to people like them, I have had the opportunity to relieve the financial burden on tuition and school-related costs.

11. I am thankful for my pets and for the joy that they bring me. Even though they are thousands of miles away in Brazil, they bring me joy. Suffering as well, but they fill my life with love and happiness.

12. I am thankful for Latin Dances. They are the cheapest and best Friday night activity!!! For only a dollar I get to dance my mind off, meet some nice people, and especially cute guys ;)

13. I am grateful for Dairy Queen's Banana Cream Pie Blizzard ;) There's no better anti-depressant.

Have a great Friday!!!

Well... sometimes when I eat too many banana cream pie blizzards, then I get depressed again due to obesity... Perhaps I will move somewhere where bigger is better... Is Brazil that way? Can I get a Brazilian green card? LOL
