Merry Christmas!

Life has been busy and I have been having fun with family and friends. I have a lot of thoughts to share with all of you, but it will have to wait until Christmas has calmed some. I do want to wish you all a Merry Christmas. This has been a special one for me since I have focused more on the reason for the season and less on the commercialism of it. It has been nice. I am so blessed to have my Savior in my life and to have been blessed for all that he has done for me. I leave you today only with these thoughts:
“This year, mend a quarrel. Seek out a forgotten friend. Dismiss suspicion and replace it with trust. Write a letter. Give a soft answer. Encourage youth. Manifest your loyalty in word and deed. Keep a promise. Forgo a grudge. Forgive an enemy. Apologize. Try to understand. Examine your demands on others. Think first of someone else. Be kind. Be gentle. Laugh a little more. Express your gratitude. Welcome a stranger. Gladden the heart of a child. Take pleasure in the beauty and wonder of the earth. Speak your love and the speak it again.” -Howard W. Hunter
