Day 45

So long, long ago I taught the 18 year olds in my ward.  They are 22 now.  I've gone to weddings, mission farewells, mission reunions and yes, baby showers for these "kids".  I had a nice long talk with two of these young men outside the bishop's office today.  Love these guys!  This is why teaching youth is the best calling in the world. 

I only have three more Sundays with my 12 year olds and before I know it, I'll be dancing at their weddings and another boat load of years will fly by.  We finished decorating for Christmas and I'm finally ready.  T leaned over to me today and whispered he wants our family to write letters to the soldiers in Iraq for Christmas. We have been so blessed and hard times are scratching at our windows, trying to get in and so this season that we have been blessed so much, we want to do things that remind our family what's really important. I can't wait.

Happy Sunday.
