Happy Mother's Day

I would like to publicly proclaim how thankful I am to have such a wonderful group of Mothers in my life.  They are always willing to help in any way possible.  I'm thankful for their influence in my life and my children's.

My wife is such a wonderful mother.  She continually puts her own desires aside to make sure that our children are well cared for.  This fact is driven home by having recently observed her completing another pregnancy.  The time she gave up and the pain she endured, to bring another beautiful spirit into our home, was more than I can imagine giving.  I am blessed to have her as my companion in raising our three fabulous children.

I love her very much and I love Mom and Daddy.

I love her.

"Our mothers and fathers gave us life and brought us into this world. They gave us the opportunity to obtain mortal bodies and experience the joys and sorrows of this bounteous earth. In many cases, they set their own dreams and desires aside for the sake of their children. How fitting it
is that we honor them and show by word and deed our love for them and our gratitude."

--Elder Joseph B. Wirthlin
