Merry Christmas!

I think that as of right now, 1am Christmas morning, I may be in the Christmas spirit. As mentioned before, I have kind of been resisting it. I have in fact been a Grinch! (I chose this picture because his hands are on his hips, like I do when I'm being sassy) (everyday!)Friends have been great about being bright and cheery but I think something I'm really struggling with is all the commercialization. I think it is truly disgusting how crazy people get about all this. I hate to sound like a Bishop, but what about the real meaning of Christmas? I am so grateful for a Savior whose birth we celebrate this time of year. I reflect everyday on His sacrifice for me and for all of us. I try to be selfless like Him but I know I fail miserably and am therefore thankful for His grace. I'm grateful to a loving Heavenly Father who sent Him to fulfill the plan and save us all, if we will only accept it.

I think the big turn around I have felt regarding Christmas this year came today because of my opportunity to be with my family. They are my favorite people on Earth, I don't have to impress them or look nice for them, they love me for me. I am so full right now of love and joy for all the blessings my family and I enjoy. I hope that you feel the same and that you are able to be with someone you love on this Christmas day.
God bless.
