To help another human being reach one’s celestial potential is part of the divine mission of woman. As mother, teacher, or nurturing saint, she molds living clay to the shape of her hopes. In partnership with God, her divine mission is to help spirits live and souls be lifted. This is the measure of her creation. It is ennobling, edifying, and exalting.
President Russell M. Nelson, "Woman— Of Infinite Worth", General Conference, October 1989
I am so grateful, especially today, for the love, sacrifice, and testimony of my mom....now and also growing up. Although it took a bit, as we know, she helped mold me into the person I am today. I am who I am because of my mom (and dad). So....if anything, it's their fault. 😁
I am proud to be her son. I am not perfect, by any means, but my foundation is well on the way to being uncrackable and immovable. I continue to see, through her example, faith, courage, tenderness, love, patience, and so many more Christlike qualities.
I am grateful, eternally, to have come to a home where I was loved, taught the truths of the gospel, and had excellent examples for how to act. I am so blessed to have that background and those genes. I am blessed.
I love you mom, today, and eternally. I am so thankful to you and for your nurturing hand, and, sometimes, for your strong and firm hand when I needed it. Thank you for your example. Thank you for your sacrifices. Thank you for your uncondional love. Thank you for your courage. Thank you for your testimony. I am lifted to a higher plane because of you.
