May we never lose sight of what is most important at this Christmastime, and each and every day thereafter. I am grateful for Jesus Christ, for his love for me during this difficult year when I first lost my mother-in-law in August and then my mother on Thanksgiving Day.
I am thankful for my knowledge of a life after this one. The separation from loved ones is short. It is comforting to know that my mother is now with my sister on the other side, not far from me. And that they continue to watch over me and my family.
I look forward to the return of my missionary daughter from Chile on January 1 (Yay!), and the time I will spend with my beautiful family.
May you each reach out to those you love at this time of year, give big hugs, and joyfully celebrate the birth of our Savior, Jesus Christ. For he brings comfort to all who sorrow and joy to our lives.
Love to all!
