Following the Prophet--I Am Grateful

I am so glad to have the family that I grew up with.  My parents are about as great as parents get.  My brothers have been my friends, as has my sister.  My siblings married wonderful, wonderful people, who I love.  I ADORE my nieces and nephews.

Two weeks ago my SIL spilled scalding water on herself and got terrible second-degree burns.  Last week my her husband--my brother--got a scrape on his leg, and it turned into cellulitis.  And last night their youngest broke his wrist.  These things are all terrible, and their luck is obviously not the greatest right now.  But I'm so grateful that things weren't worse in any of these circumstances. 

I'm just so glad that our family is relatively healthy, well, whole, and happy!
