       Have you ever played the game of Monopoly?  Isn’t it great to grasp the sense of power that goes along with being Master of the Board?  Your tenacity and success at gaining all of that stuff. “All those houses and hotels. All that property–Boardwalk and Park Place, the railroads and the utility companies.  All those thousands of dollars. WHEN THE GAME IS OVER, IT ALL GOES BACK IN THE BOX,” wrote John Ortberg, author of If You Want to Walk On Water, You’ve Got to Get Out of the Boat.   

       Sometimes you just don’t want it all to go back in the box.  So what is the lesson that some of the smartest people in the world forget?  What is the biggest lesson that life has to teach? Well, here is the predicament that you face: repeatedly you lose sight of what is important and what isn’t.  What is important is the absolute necessity of arranging your life around what matters in light of your mortality and eternity.

     As a college student, though, you may not be able to buy presents for everyone. A solution that I use every year is creating something for my friends that are personal to them. While listening to your favorite holiday tunes, here are some ideas for excellent holiday presents.

    My mom is an amazing, hard working woman. She does so much for everyone and I am not sure how she does it. I feel that sometimes people just do not understand how much my mom does for everyone. She takes on so much responsibility with her job, classes to  get her Ph.D., still helping out my travel softball organization, and much more! She is always really busy! Even through the roughest days, my mom pushes through it with a smile on her face. I really think I get it from her because I am always busy with my job(s) and extracurricular activities. If I was older, I could probably be my mom’s twin because we are so much alike. The one thing that I cherish the most is the relationship that my mom and I have. She is my best friend and I can go to talk to her about anything. Whether it is to vent about all the homework I have or things that are just not going right in life, I can talk to her about anything. Here are some of the reasons why I love having my mom as my best friend.
