The best of all gifts around any Christmas tree:
the presence of a happy family
all wrapped up in each other.
I'm having a wonderful Christmas for a number of reasons. Happily I'm not sick, but I admit it's only because I've been on antibiotics for the last three weeks. Yeah! Anyway, it's good I'm not suffering that way. Also, I don't have pictures to share, but the images are in my mind of family and friends enjoying one another - eating, games, hiking, playing, holding the baby - the list goes on. I'm happy for these moments. I wonder if I appreciate it all the more because I'm getting older. I guess I'm finally getting what life is all about. I know the Savior with his love and sacrifice has brought me this great joy. I'm so grateful.
