Jesus said love everyone, treat them kindly, too.
It's hard to believe that it's almost the new year. Christmas was wonderful and I'm so grateful for all the reminders of why we celebrate this special holiday. As this year comes to a close I find myself thinking about all of the things I want to accomplish and become in 2011. I always try to think of New Year's resolutions and find that I never actually keep them, so this year I'm only going to have one. I want to be the type of person that makes everyone feel loved and important. I want to be a better friend this year. I want to bring out the best in others and see the best in others. I understand that there's a lot that goes into fulfilling this resolution, but I'm not afraid of doing the work. I want to do some character studies on people I feel have been great friends - in my life as well as throughout history. I think most importantly I want to study the life of the Savior and how he showed an example of perfect friendship. I hope I never again, knowingly or unknowingly, injure one of my friends emotionally or make them feel like they are less than they are. I want to be able to see everyone through God's eyes and love them as He does.
