The important things
Thoughts and Things: The batman hoods and shirts finished. 3 little girls purses sewn and filled. All my christmas projects finally completed.

Now for the important things to do at christmas.

"This Christmas mend a quarrel.
Seek out a forgotten friend.
Dismiss suspision and replace it with trust.
Write a letter.
Give a soft answer.
Encourage youth.
Manifest your loyalty in word and deed.
Keep a promise.
Forgo a grudge.
Forgive an enemy.
Try to understand.
Examine your demands on others.
Think first of someone else.
Be kind.
Be gentle.
Laugh a little more.
Express your gratitude.
Welcome a stranger.
Gladden the heart of a child.
Take pleasure in the beauty and wonder of the earth.
Speak your love then speak it again."

President Howard W. Hunter of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.
