I love Christmas. I think everyone loves Christmas, but I am really enjoying the season this year. I really think it has something to do with the fact that I got all my shopping done so I can just enjoy it! I have been very contemplative the last couple months, for no peticular reason. I am so grateful for a whole month where we are celebrating the birth of the Savior. I feel like I always try to be a good person and to live a good life but the last little bit I have been trying extra hard. Im so thankful for Jesus Christ in my life and for the knowledge that I have that even though I may make many mistakes ( alot of really dumb ones) that I can move past them and try again to be better. I think maybe one of the reasons I have tried to step up my game the last little bit is because of Avery. I have this little person in my life now who depends on me for everything. I want so badly to be a good mom to her and to teach her how to be a good person. I know she is only 8 months old and I may be jumping the gun a little bit but I figure if I want to teach her all these things I better make sure I am living the things as well! Im not saying that I have not been but I just want to always make sure that I don't get complacent with where Im at. I hope that I always am trying to do better. Im so thankful for a wonderful, patient husband who is such a good example to me and makes me want to be better and at the same time makes me feel like I am already the best. I am so grateful that we have the priesthood in our home because Kurtis lives worthy and is always trying to improve himself. Im grateful for people around me who improve who I am and who are amazing examples to me. Anyway, I love Christmas and I hope in some small way I can find little ways everyday this season and throughout the year to help others around me come closer to Christ and be happier, because I know there are so many around me that do that for me!
