Christmas Time

For my December scripture study I am reading past First Presidency devotionals. This one was from President Monson in 2009.

"My brothers and sisters, finding the real joy of the season comes not in the hurrying and the scurrying to get more done or in the purchasing of obligatory gifts. Real joy comes as we show the love and compassion inspired by the Savior of the World, who said, 'Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these ... ye have done it unto me.'" Dec 2009

If you get chance, read the whole talk and then cry like a baby like I did. Some people just remind you what it means to be compassionate.

1 Week

Yes, I have noticed that I have one week left of my youth left until my body starts to decay. (According to Charleah anyways.) I have dreaded this day for a year and it is finally upon me.

What will I be doing to celebrate my last week?

Working. And then working. Not eating sweets. Grading Papers. Listening to Christmas music.

Hopefully I can get some sleep in there somewhere. Just joking. I might be busy, but like I'll sacrifice my sleep.
