{One thing I miss

about Christmas in Salt Lake City...

{and our family of course!} Temple Square is beautiful this time of year....and was a Christmas tradition throughout my childhood. It continued after I was married and had kids. Until we moved to Iowa

It is the tradition that I miss the most. Even on the coldest of nights, it is beautiful and brings the spirit of Christmas into your soul instantly.

I remember one year, very early in our marriage. We had a huge arguement....a big fight. We didn't live very far from downtown SLC. I drove down alone and walked through Temple Square. I also walked the streets surrounding the temple. It was beautiful and humbling. I knew that I wanted to swallow my pride and have the Christmas spirit in my heart. I walked and walked alone for hours....thinking....and soaking in all the beautiful lights and sounds of Christmas. I needed that feeling then and I need it again now...

This, the spirit of Christmas, that forever and ever endures. May it leave its richest blessing in the hearts of you and yours.
