Mary has been lighting the world all of December. No one asked her to light the world, but we did have an FHE lesson about what the light the world program is, and Mary just decided she was going to light the world herself. So all month she has been quietly picking up messes, bringing things to people, and trying hard to be kind to her brother and sisters. She has gone out of her way to share, to write sweet notes to people, and to control her temper. Piano practices have been so much easier, and I just want it on record that Mary’s best self has been on full display all month long. She is such a treasure, and we are so grateful that she is in our family.
