Christmas Time

"The gift of Christmas isn't wrapped up in presents or parties. The gift of Christmas is Jesus Christ, the Only Begotten of the Father, the Son of God. As you follow Him, you put people first. You may spend less time in lines and more time serving others. You may spend less money on - and more time with - the people you love. You may lose yourself and you may find everything else that matters."

Good things to come

"Every one of us has times when we need to know things will get better.  Moroni spoke of it in the Book of Mormon as "Hope for a better world".  For emotional health and spiritual stamina, everyone needs to be able to look forward to something respite, to something pleasant and renewing and hopeful, weather that blessing be near at hand or still some distance ahead.  It is enough to know we can get there, that however measured or far away, there is a promise of "Good things to come."
~Elder Jeffrey R. Holland (An High Priest of Good Things to Come)

This is such an optimistic concept, This is one thing that always helps me get through rough times, I know that things will get better. They always do. No matter how hard or unbelievable, things always look up:) I am so thankful that we always have things to look forward to, This life is so incredible, it is such a gift. All of the emotions and things that we experience help us more than we can comprehend!
