I’ve become aware lately that Christmas can be an especially stressful time for many people. I have friends and family members who have communicated to me that this season is the most difficult time of the year for them.
So, in the spirit of being even-handed, I thought I’d list some of the things I like most about Christmas 2009 and then also list some of the concerns that others have passed on to me. Please feel free to add your own thoughts — both blessings and burdens for this season.
* Any time that is spent talking and thinking about the Savior is calming and reassuring. My youngest kids are seeing movies/Church shows about Jesus, and His birth is a constant features of Family Home Evening. His spirit seems to permeate our house, which is a great thing.
