“When you walk with gratitude, you do not walk with arrogance and conceit and egotism, you walk with a spirit of thanksgiving that is becoming to you and will bless your lives."
--Gordon B. Hinckley

"To express gratitude is gracious and honorable, to enact gratitude is generous and noble, but to live with gratitude ever in our hearts is to touch heaven."
--Thomas S. Monson 

"Often we feel grateful and intend to express our thanks but forget to do so or just don’t get around to it. Someone has said that “feeling gratitude and not expressing it is like wrapping a present and not giving it.”
--Thomas S. Monson

Dear sweet Trevor,
I have a wrapped present for you.  
It's been sitting here for a while.
Why do I let it sit?
I'm so sorry.  I want you to have it . . .
Thank you.
I am so grateful for you.
You are the sweetest man,
The best husband,
An amazing father.
You work so hard for all of us.
You make me laugh like no other.
I am lucky, you are so affectionate.
Thank you for all your "i miss u" texts.
I love them.
You promise adventure.
You smell heavenly.
When you hug me, I am instantly warm.
Thank you for holding my hand.
For always telling me how sexy I am.
For always looking me in the eye
before asking if I really do know how much you love me.
I do know.
And I'm not as good as you are at saying it,
But I love you.
You are the greatest blessing in my life.
And I would be ungrateful
if I didn't let you know.

you truly are an amazing woman, Shelli. I don't think I will ever know what I did to deserve you.

Every mother prays that her little girl will find someone who cherishes this rare and wondrous creature as she deserves. I am so very grateful for two such sons-in-law. Thanks, Trev. I love you.
