Mindful Monday - Mothers

This quote was printed  in our Church  Program yesterday.  


" Many years ago the First Presidency issued a statement that has had a profound and lasting influence upon me.  'Motherhood,' they wrote, 'is near to divinity.  It is the highest, holiest service to be assumed by mankind.  It places her who honors its holy calling and service next to the angels.' " Elder Russell M. Nelson

These are some other quotes that I love about the
beautiful blessings and responsibilities of motherhood.  

"In the soft and gentle arms of a mother's love, children can come to know the voice of the Lord." 
Dwan J. Young

"Be a Mother who is committed to loving her children into standing on higher ground than the environment surrounding them. Mother's are endowed with a love that is unlike any other love on the face of the earth." Marjorie Pay Hinckley

"When a mother provides an example of joy, the children's world is one of happiness." Barbara B. Smith

"Nothing a woman can ever do will have anywhere near as much importance as the influence she has as a mother." George D. Durran

I have a wonderful mother. 
I feel so blessed and I am forever grateful to have her!

But my life has also been touched by the example and influence of 
my grandmother, daughters, daughter-in-law, friends and YOU!

Those were all very beautiful quotes (with lovely photos to go with them)
It was a hard mothers day for me...being away from my kids, and I thought a lot about Matt.
I'm sorry, but I did ponder oon "how did I fail him somehow". I guess that is that dilema of every mother.
but I am GRATEFUL to be called mom
