This song has been on my mind a lot lately. This beautiful version by Kris Allen was played at my sweet mother-in-laws viewing. This so makes me think of her and how much she loves people...she really wanted everyone to feel her love especially her family. There are times where I just think of how much I loved seeing her smile, and how much she made feel important and part of the family, and I can't help but cry a little. I really miss her and I think of her everyday.

So this past week has been Crazy with a capital C. Not only did I work a full 5 day week but I job shadowed 12 hours, and well we added a new addition to our family. It would be fun if it was a kid but I'm happy with what we got... a new little puppy! He is an American Bulldog and is about six weeks. I've never had a dog, and to be honest I never really wanted one but I'm glad my husband talked me into it because I'm already in love!

So I've decided even though I hate the snow (or should I say driving in it), I still love the month of December, and I'm just realizing that it really is one of my favorite months of the whole year. I love that one Holiday can bring so much family together...it's the little moments that make it special. I've already had a few I can think of this year. Every Sunday we go to my parents house to eat dinner and last Sunday me and my sister put up the tree, as well as the other decorations. Jesse who was playing Call of Duty on the Xbox was not to thrilled that my sister and I were blasting Christmas music, and Casey was not all that happy that we were blasting it in his room, :) good thing we didn't care. It was fun spending time with my sister, because I don't get to do that too often. Another thing that I have loved this year happens each Sunday too. Jesse and my Dad have made a tradition to watch a Clint Eastwood movie every Sunday after dinner, so me, my mom, and my sister decided we would watch a Christmas Movie while they enjoy their manly movie. Oh and yes you guessed it those Hallmark Christmas movies, the ones that make you cry, those are what we watch and well...WE LOVE IT! I'm so excited for the rest of this month. One thing that I can't forget to mention about this month is how I'm reminded of how great the gospel is during this time when we celebrate His birth. I've really been struggling with reading my scriptures....life seems so crazy sometimes and I know that's not an excuse...but this month I have made a goal to read my Scriptures every night. Of course this goal will go beyond the month of December, but I know this will be a great time for me to become closer to the Lord. I want him to know I love him, and that I have a testimony of the gospel. I don't know what I would do with out it. The last thing I want to mention is how much I love and miss my mother-in-law I know this Christmas won't be the easiest without her. I miss her warm smile, miss her love for the holiday, I miss her love for the gospel, and I just miss her period. The one thing that will make this better is knowing that she is in Heaven watching over us, celebrating with us, and most of all I know she is happy!

Sometimes we don't realize how much one person can really make a difference in another persons life. Today was a good day for me I got up, got dressed, and went and ran some errands. My last stop happened to be the place where Jesse got my wedding ring. My ring has never been cleaned since we've been married and I also needed to get it re-dipped. When I walked in there was a man that came to greet me. He helped me and was very nice from the moment I came in. By the time I was done giving him my information and getting the receipt so I could come pick my ring up next week we started talking and he said something that I will never forget. He told me that when customers come in he can tell what kind of person they are by their countenance and that my husband is lucky to have me as a wife. I'm not telling you this because I think I am an amazing person or wife, nor am I telling this to brag, but I'm telling you this because its proof that there really are good people in this world. Sometimes I think there is so much rudeness and cruelness in the world, and than I meet someone like this man and I am reminded that there is just as much good. I know it was something small that he did for me, and maybe I'm making a big deal out of it, but it made my day, made me smile, and it made me feel important. All of us try our best and usually feel good about it but it's so nice to actually hear that you are doing alright from someone else.
