So, so true. All my love and thanks to my own mother, Rita. Thanks for everything Mom!!!
To be a good mother requires that the she defers many of her own needs and desires in favor of the needs of her family. As a consequence of this sacrifice, a conscientious mother develops a nobility of character and learns to put into practice the selfless truths taught by the Savior Himself.
Wow – words spoken so kindly and with such power. I don’t believe it is only Mothers who sacrifice. Many people give up needs and desires because of their love and care so deeply for others – and because of our relationship with Jesus. I never looked at motherhood as a sacrifice, but as what brings me true joy. I think all of us receive that kind of joy when we are helping people – that giving of ourselves and putting others needs ahead of ours.
Amen. Unfortunately, not everyone is blest to be able to experience this.
That was wonderful. Thanks Gary. What a way to end my week:)
I cannot imagine my life not having been able to experience this experience of love and joy and then to be able to experience it with grandchildren is such another blessing. Thank you God my father and Jesus my brother.
It is my honor and privilege to be your mother! I love you and “Morning Coffee.”
