It's finally really feeling a lot like Christmas

I absolutely LOVE Christmas. It's my favorite time of year and I love the cold weather, the lights, the trees, everything.

I haven't really been feeling the holiday spirit until lately because I've been dealing with finals, work, and not getting mail from my missionary but now I've decided not to put so much stock in what I'm NOT getting, but putting more in what I DO get. And since then, I've been much happier and I'm feeling the Christmas spirit. Plus the fact that I get to spoil my nursery kids and my friends really helps. I love feeling happy and really feeling that my Heavenly Father knows and loves me no matter what I do, or think, or feel. I've always known it but it's even more evident during the season when we celebrate our Savior's birth and are with our families and friends.

As you can see, I put the Grinch on this blog and it's there for a reason. This is my favorite Christmas movie and story, other than the true Christmas story of course. The Grinch tells us that even if we feel so alone and angry and that no one wants us to be around, someone always does. And it will transform us into happy hearts. And we will grow and love more and more each day because if it ;)

As we gather together this season, try to be a little more like the newly changed Grinch, and try to love more and more throughout our lives.
