Warm Fuzzies...

I decided this year to do something a little different in addition to traditional neighbor and friend gifts. (Which, by the way, we haven't made yet!) I made a big crock pot of yummy soup, mini loaves of bread, and sweet rolls, and we took them around to some of the single widows and widowers in the ward tonight.

I hadn't planned on the 20-30 minutes we would stay at each house visiting, but it was really nice to sit and visit with them. It must be hard this time of year to be alone, without your loved one by your side. I did it with the intent of bringing some holiday cheer to people, but I think I was the one who was lifted up the most.

I am thankful for the reminder of what this holiday is really about. Giving to others and doing service for others is far more valuable than anything money can buy. I am grateful I had the chance to be reminded of that tonight!
