I am not normally one of those people who thinks about Christmas in June, but lately my thoughts have gone to “It’s A Wonderful Life” (one of my favorite movies – ever). I think that the angel Clarence sums it all up when he said “No man is a failure who has friends.” Last Saturday I attended a bridal shower for a former neighbor and was so surprised when I realized that an hour and a half had passed by. I was too busy laughing and catching up with some dear friends to worry about all of the things I needed to get do. Isn’t that what life is about – making and keeping friends? I can tell that Nathan has made and I am sure will continue to make some lifelong friends. He is always sad to see one companion go but so happy with meeting a new one. His new companion is Elder Burgoyne, a young man from Pocatello, Idaho and in Nathan’s words is “really great, very positive and enthusiastic.” Looks like they will get along quite well.
