Who I'm Most Thankful For

I've had a lot of time to think about Thanksgiving this year, because well, I've had more time on my hands. While I'd love to have a job (which I do need pretty soon here...), I am grateful for this precious downtime I've had.
Anyway, I've been thinking about my many, many blessings. And, I've decided there's one thing, well, one person I am MOST grateful for. It is my Savior Jesus Christ.
I don't give Him the credit He deserves. He has done so much for me. And sometimes I am prideful and stubborn and fail to remember and recognize Him. So, I'm going to try to do better at that.
I am so grateful for all He has done for me. Without His love and sacrifice, there'd be no hope for me. I am not perfect. At all. I fall short in so many ways. But because of His Atonement, one day I can be perfect. And I can be forgiven of my sins.
I am extremely grateful that He knows EXACTLY how I feel in any given situation. Whatever I've felt, He's felt too. Whatever pain I've experienced, He's experienced it too. It had to be this way. This is so He could truly be the Savior of the world. I love this quote by President Thomas S. Monson:
Only the Master knows the depths of our trials, our pain, and our suffering. He alone offers us eternal peace in times of adversity. He alone touches our tortured souls with His comforting words:
“Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.
“Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls.
“For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.”  
I love my Savior. I'm so grateful for the love He has for me. I'm grateful He is always there. I just have to turn to Him and I can find peace, strength and hope. I can't think of any greater blessing I have in my life than Him.
