Christmas Sunday is my absolute favorite. I was asked to speak in Sacrament Meeting and it gave me the opportunity this week to make pondering about spiritual things a priority. And it was a blessing. I felt the Spirit much stronger and that helped us get through a week that stretched us in many ways. Somehow we were lifted and everything that was required of us was doable.
As I watched my 4 favorite people from the stand, my eyes teared up as I was overcome with gratitude and love for them. My heart wanted to burst! I'm not sure how I got so lucky, but truly they are my favorite gifts (besides the Atonement, of course!)
