For those of you who may not know, I’m a Mormon. My faith has shaped everything I am. I know where I came from. I know why I’m here, where I’m going and how to get there. The teachings of Christ have given me purpose. I know that there is life after death, that my family can be together forever and that Heavenly Father loves me.
President Dieter F. Uchtdorf, member of the First Presidency gave the most wonderful talk at the General Relief Society Broadcast.

You are Not Forgotten
If anything, read that last paragraph. It makes me cry every time I watch it. It’s hard being a mom. It’s a thankless job really. One that demands so much physical and mental energy it’s absolutely exhausting. And then to have no one notice all the hard work you do, no pats on the back, awards, bonuses or raises. But knowing that you are not forgotten. That Heavenly Father sees all the sacrifices you are making, that he is proud of you and that he loves you. It makes this whole motherhood thing totally worth it!
