As I sit here wrapped in my new stadium blanket from my mom, I’m toasty warm and very appreciative of her thoughtfulness in her choice of gifts. It has a woodland snow scene with wolves printed on it. The basement is cold this morning and this blanket is perfect for keeping me warm, and the scene is awesome. I’m very thankful for the gift.
There was another gift given that I celebrate on this 25th day of December every year, though the actual date of the event was closer to Easter. That gift is the birth of Jesus Christ over 2000 years ago. It, too was a very thoughtful gift that I’m appreciative of. Looking past all of the other clutter and stress and dinners and mortal family, that is the great gift of the day that I see. No matter how many other things go on today, remember the Savior of mankind’s humble birth. Merry Christmas!
