First off I just wanted to share that video with those who maybe havent seen it. What a great way to start off Christmas. I love this season, here in spain they set up lights around the cities and its absolutely beautiful, last night it was pouring rain and we were passing by some people in the rain, and usually that can be a hard time but with the lights in the street and cool reflections, i had a good time walking around being wet. luckily i brought my umbrella though.
Also, Congratulations to Brady and Mary!! they got married last week. Probably the best looking brunette couple there is, hahha. Hope it was a good wedding, thanks for having it while i was away too… just know. I forgive you. love you both
This past week went really well, we had some great visits and got to know some members better as well. I love getting to know the members, it seems everyone has an amazing story about finding the church or coming to know that it is true. We had thanksgiving dinner with a family from Catalunya and they made us a well known spanish soup, and we all said what we were thankful for after the meal. It wasnt the same as the turkey but it was a cool substitute. But good news is, that the following day we had a turkey dinner with a another family where the father is from Utah and the mother from spain. So we had a great turkey, mashed potatoes, and gravy. It was amazing. needless to say we were very very thankful for the amazing dinners that we had.
We were also able to share what we were thankful for with the second family, and its great to hear how everyone is grateful for family and the Gospel. Because thats what im thankful for as well. I am so grateful for the example and the love of my parents. I am grateful for my brother and sisters and their love and support in everything that I do. I am so thankful to have the Gospel of Jesus Christ and to know that my Father in Heaven listens to me and loves me. i know a happiness that will never end, and for that I will forever be grateful.
I love you all, and I hope you have the greatest week and start to the Christmas season.
con mucho cariño,
