Our year has been far from easy but I have learned so much.  I have learned I have friends who I can trust. I learned that families are truly forever and just because we saw good bye now it will not be forever.  I set a goal and completed before the end of the year NOW that's a first.   I learned to listen to the spirit when it guides me and I have learned to suck up my pride and ask for help.
Boy that was a hard one. :)

This Christmas I was listening to a song that touched my heart. One set of lyrica's caused to me look back and reflect on the life of Christ. The song is called I Celebrate The Day song by Relient K
One versus said:
And the first time
That You opened Your eyes did You realize that You would be my Savior
And the first breath that left Your lips
Did You know that it would change this world forever

As I taught my youth class this last week I asked them Do you think he knew even as a baby that he would one day save your soul?  When Mary looked down at her sweet baby boy kissing each perfect toe and fingers did she truly realized that he would one day save my soul and I would be able to returned to my Father in Heaven.  Its pretty amazing when you think about it.

A year of pictures totally over 6, 000 photos each one capturing a moment, a time, an emotion that will be there forever saved in my heart and mind.

Merry Christmas!!!
