Mother's Day

Happy Mother's Day/Women day. I say that because today in church one of the speakers made a comment about how Eve was named Eve because she was the mother of all living. Even before she ever was a mother.
All women have that wonderful nature that makes them nurturers. We have unique characteristics that gives us that caring gentleness.

My mom gave me a book for mothers day which had these quotes that I liked.

"A mother is she who can take the place of all others but whose place no one else can take."
Cardinal Mermillod

"Motherhood brings as much joy as ever, but it still brings boredom, exhaustion, and sorrow too. Nothing else ever will make you as happy or as sad, as proud or as tired, for nothing is quite as hard as helping a person develop his own individuality especially while you struggle to keep your own."
Marguerite Kelly and Elia Parsons

I LOVE being a mom!! It is the best feeling in the world! I have a great example to look up to, My Mom. I LOVE YOU MOM!! Thanks for being such an AMAZING mom! You are so wonderful in so many ways!!

That was one of the few things I actually heard in sacrament...about Eve. Neat thought.

I hope you had a good day yesterday! Happy first mothers day!!
