As I have taken down the Christmas decorations, I have reflected on the past Christmas season and how quickly it has come & gone. I've also reflected on how quickly things can change. I've always had a hard time with change unless it was fall in Arizona or spring in Utah. I especially do not like to lose people that I am close to. This Christmas season was bittersweet as I have lost 2 people that have influenced me greatly. There is a hole in my heart that will forever be there until I see them again. It's funny that even though I fight change I now want to embrace it within myself because of the lives these two have led. I want to change so that I can live up to and honor the lives these two have inspired us with. Things are constantly changing, they always will. It is essential they do so that the Plan can play out. One thing I know for sure is that our Savior knows and loves us. He wants us to have Peace & Joy as we seek those things that are pleasing unto Him. With all of the gloom around us it is still possible to feel great amounts of peace. Miracles are happening everyday all around us. Things that seem impossible are very obtainable through Him. He does work through both angels here on earth and angels up above. For this I am sure. Many of the angels here have truly rescued me over the last couple of years. I have such GRATITUDE in my heart for those that have served and helped me. I will never be able to pay back the Savior or even some who have helped me through out my life so it is my prayer that I will be ever so in-tune and cognizant of those that are in need of my help so I can pay it forward. I believe that through charity which is the pure love of Christ we can be our brothers keeper which I'm pretty sure would give our Maker more joy than almost anything.
I'll miss you Auntie Mary & Earl.
