Shout Out!

I want to give each of you a shout out and let you know what a wonderful mother you are! I had a very special mother's day today. I was asked to sing for our Mother's Day program in Relief Society and well it didnt' go like I planned. I completely couldn't sing. I was choked up and crying mostly the whole time through it. It only helped that my mom was in town to make me more emotional. As I started to sing the words, "she taught me to live with the Lord as my strength" I was flooded with emotions of gratitude for my mother. She has done everything for me to raise me well and in the way of the Lord. I felt so incredibly blessed. Although you couldn't hear the words, I felt them in my heart. Afterward, the RS president read the words to the song and I was so glad because they needed to be heard. Besides being pretty embarrassed that I let my emotions so so much, it was still a great day! I love this day when we get to appreciate all the wonderful women and mothers in our lives. Thank you, Mom for giving me so much.
