There are times in our lives where we are not aware of everything happening around us. We think the world is crashing down around us and yet we are not looking at the good stuff that is happening. I have been guilty of this many times in my life and at this point today I have tried to look at all the blessings I do have. I am blessed with wonderful family and friends who hold me together when my pieces want to come a part. I am blessed with a job, I have had times where I could not work and I am lucky enough to work right now. I am blessed with a loving husband who loves STILL and knows my darkest days and hardest nights. I am also blessed with a testimony of the gospel of Jesus Christ.
There have been too many times in my life that I have had precious moments of strength from the Savior. I have had quiet times that I have contemplated my part as a mother, wife, sister, daughter and friend and I think that the influence of the teachings of Christ have made me who I am.
This Christmas season remember why we celebrate it. Cherish your own blessings you have been given and try to recognize the Saviors hand in your life.
