It Was Mom

There have been countless times in my life when I have truly been thankful for my mom. As I have grown older I have started to see all that she has done for me, blessing my life with her love and kindness toward me. I was not an easy child and yet my mom stuck with me and taught me right from wrong. How many nights had she not slept as she held me in her arms as I cried? How many times had she bandaged my cuts, kissed me hello and walked me to school many times sacrificing her health and energy on my behalf. Through my mother I realized that the way she loves me comes close to the miraculous way God loves us. My close friend, my teacher, my mother, I thank you for all you have done for me.

As we bid farewell to Mother's Day let us try a little harder each day, each week to remind our mothers, out wonderful, beloved mothers how much we love them, appreciate them and are thankful for them.

"May each of us treasure this truth; one cannot forget mother and remember God. One cannot remember mother and forget God. Why? Because these two sacred persons, God and mother, partners in creation, in love, in sacrifice, in service, are as one."
-Thomas S. Monson

“The Name of Mother”“The noblest thoughts my soul can claim.
The holiest words my tongue can frame,
Unworthy are to frame the name
More sacred than all other.
An infant when her love first came,
A man, I find it just the same:
Reverently I breathe her name—
The blessed name of mother.”

-George Griffith Fetter


  1. Thank you for the beautiful comments! Mothers are amazing and I can feel the love of my Heavenly Father because my mother taught me about unconditional love.

  2. Thank you for sharing this post about mothers. It is truly the hardest job to be a mother but at the same time the most rewarding honor to have. I am a mother of 6 children and am truly blessed by their good lives daily. It is a noble title and calling. .....One that I'm thankful to hold. I highly recommend it to any woman! Thanks mom!
