I know, I know, I just blogged yesterday! But I figure I have to catch up from not blogging for the past month! I've just had so much on my mind that I wanted to write about!
First of all, my super cool cousin Michelle shared a quote on Facebook that I just can't help but pass on. It's one of those, "I'm a hopeless romantic so this quote is adorable," kind of quotes. Just accept it.
"He's not perfect. You aren't either, and the two of you wil never be perfect. But if he can make you laugh at least once, causes you to think twice, and if he admits to being human and making mistakes, hold onto him and give him the most you can. He isn't going to quote poetry, he's not thinking about you every moment, but he will give you a part of him that he knows you could break. Don't hurt him, don't change him, and don't expect for more than he can give. Don't analyze. Smile when he makes you happy, yell when he makes you mad, and miss him when he's not there. Love hard when there is love to be had. Because perfect guys don't exist, but there's always one guy that is perfect for you."
Pretty awesome right!? If every relationship was looked at through this quote the world would be a much happier place! I only hope I can be that "pefect" for someone, and be that in love! It's just sweet!
The other thing on my mind, of course, is this lovely time of year! The lights, the tree, the snow that SHOULD be here, I can't help but just smile as I think about the beauty that Christmas brings into each of our lives. Tonight I had the opportunity to watch the First Presidency devotional given by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. Those men ROCK. (Dieter, Dieter....) President Monson said, "When we keep the Spirit of Christmas we keep the Spirit of Christ." Indeed that is very true. Last year with madrigals I was so absorbed into Christmas I did not have a spare minute to think about what I wanted or anything! I really was BURSTING with the Christmas Spirit! I hope this year I can repeat last year, but I would love to be absorbed in service and helping others, rather than singing. I am so thankful for this time of year and everything I have! I can't help but think of my cute little kids in India, since it's been officially a year since I've seen them! I wish I could be back with them! Maybe next Christmas! :) I have also made it a goal to be kissed under a mistletoe. That's never happened! It's going to this year! Watch out! ;) Merry Christmas everyone! Go eat drink hot chocolate with your families!
