This Christmas....

I have been finding some really great blogs lately and this is one thing that I would like to share with everyone.  It is on Julie's blog and I thought it would make a good post since Christmas is a few days away, people may be getting a little stressed out and need to take a few moments to think about what Christmas is all about.

"This Christmas, mend a quarrel.
Seek out a forgotten friend.
Dismiss suspicion and replace it with trust.
Write a letter.
Give a soft answer.
Encourage youth.
Manifest your loyalty in word and deed.
Keep a promise.
Forgo a grudge.
Forgive an enemy.
Try to understand.
Examine your demands on others.
Think first of someone else.
Be kind.
Be gentle.
Laugh a little more.
Express your gratitude.
Welcome a stranger.
Gladden the heart of a child.
Take pleasure in the beauty and wonder of the earth.
Speak your love and then speak it again."

President Howard W. Hunter

Please take time out of your busy day to reflect on all of your blessings large and small.  Share a smile with a stranger, a kind word with a friend, a hug with someone you love.  You may never know how these little things may really brighten someone's day.
