Day 106: Thankful Today for This Time of Year
There is such a spirit of hope and giving this time of year as we prepare for Christmas. There are Secret Santa's, Angel trees, and other activities that show there are those who still remember it is better to give than receive. There is also a hope that as this year ends the coming year will bring new opportunities and fresh starts.
And then most important of all, the reason for this season: the Savior who gave the ultimate sacrifice and gives us all a fresh start and a new opportunity for closeness to God. I love Christmas. It is my favorite holiday.
