Today is Black Friday! I have only once ventured out on an early morning Black Friday shopping spree. It was with my mother-in-law to a tiny smocking/fabric store. The earlier we got there, the better the percentage off we received. I came home tired and thinking, “Was it really worth it!”
I woke up this morning with a sweet text from Alexis. Her and her roommate are going to venture into Honolulu for some Black Friday shopping. I jokingly said, “Be careful and have fun!” I then started reflecting upon Christmas and the responsibility parents have in filling stockings and making sure everyone is happy Christmas morning! I started feeling the anxiety and quickly opened the laptop to search for potential gifts. Then I was reminded of a short clip the LDS Church was going to be releasing over the holidays and quickly found this clip on youtube. My anxiety vanished and I remembered, once again, why I even celebrate Christmas.
Please enjoy this sweet reminder of the real Gift of Christmas!
