Happy Mothers Day!

Happy Mothers Day!!! 

To my Mom.
I have the most amazing Mother.  She has done, and still does, so much for me and my family.  If you were to define the word selflessness, her name would be right there next to it.  
She is such a hard worker,  I don't think there is ever a time when she is not working or helping someone.  She is such an amazing example to me and to those around her.  She is always so positive and so good to give you a compliment or make you smile.  She is very kind hearted and always there when you need some help.  She is so dear to me and the most beautiful woman I know.  I love you Mom, Happy Mothers Day!

“All that I am or ever hope to be, I owe to my angel mother.”
Abraham Lincoln  

I couldn't have said it better myself!

Last night I was looking up good quotes on motherhood and I came across this...  it was too good not to share!   It's from Dieter F. Uchtdor.    I love it.

Bounds of Creativity 

"If you are a mother, you participate with God in His work of creation—not only by providing physical bodies for your children but also by teaching and nurturing them. If you are not a mother now, the creative talents you develop will prepare you for that day, in this life or the next. "You may think you don't have talents, but that is a false assumption, for we all have talents and gifts, every one of us (see D&C 46:11–12). The bounds of creativity extend far beyond the limits of a canvas or a sheet of paper and do not require a brush, a pen, or the keys of a piano. Creation means bringing into existence something that did not exist before—colorful gardens, harmonious homes, family memories, flowing laughter. "What you create doesn't have to be perfect. . . . Don't let the voices of critics paralyze you—whether that voice comes from the outside or the inside. "If you still feel incapable of creating, start small. Try to see how many smiles you can create, write a letter of appreciation, learn a new skill, identify a space and beautify it."

-Elder Dieter F. Uchtdor
