The first thing Elder Oaks says is "We should thank God for our adversities."
So today for my attitude of gratitude, I am thankful for Fred.
In writing this, I realize that to you, dear reader (how much do you love that I just pulled a George Eliot?), it may seem a little silly, or a little forced, or a little insincere. But I do know how much there is to be grateful for with Fred. I have learned a lot and I have grown. And, like the man toward the end of the video, I am thankful for the support of my family during a hard time.
