Gratitude over greed

The season is upon us, Christmas time.

Of course, this is my favorite time of the year.

For some reason everything is more clear to me during this season.

For example, I realize how thankful I am for my family and friends. It’s that moment when we are sitting in the living room at night with the Christmas tree lights brightening up the room as we sip on our hot chocolate, smiling and laughing as we watch Hallmark Christmas movies.

That’s when I am happiest; I feel very fortunate to have such a loving family.

Also, our church has these beautiful decorations for this season and as I sit in the pew on a Sunday morning, I am astounded how happy everyone is singing and worshipping and how happy it makes me to see so many people who love our Savior just as much as I do.

This season I feel very refreshed. I am in a new place in my life and I could not be more happy than I am in this moment as I write this.

I think it’s important for everyone to feel gratitude during this time rather than greed. We have so much to be thankful for and we need to realize that before these beautiful things we have become the things we miss.

I hope everyone has a blessed holiday season!
