To all the Mothers

I know it has been almost two months since I have written anything. I also know that this is being posted a day after mothers day however, I have been really under the weather and have been sick. However, I wanted to take a minute and write a letter to my mom.

Dear Mom,
             Thank you for always taking the time to love me and care for me. Thank you for always supporting me throughout all of my journeys in this life. You have been the greatest example to me of the wife and mother I hope to be someday. You have always put your husband and children before your own wants and have done everything to help those around you. You are the most selfless and beautiful women I know. I could not have become the person I am without you by my side all those years. I call you almost daily and it is because even on the gloomiest of days you are the one that puts a smile on my face and you smile with me through all of the good times. I cyannot even begin to put into words the strength and courage that you have. I have seen you go through more trials than I ever imagined. I want you to know that in my eyes there is no greater example of courage and strength. I thank you for teaching me as a young child the skills I will need to fulfill my calling as a wife and mother one day. I could not have learned from anyone better. I love you so much and thank god for you each and every day.

I also want to take a minute and tell my future mother in law whoever you are..... that when I meet your son, the one whom I will go throughout the eternities with. I will owe everything to you, for raising the man that will be my eternal companion. For teaching him to love and serve his family. For teaching him how he should treat his wife. For raising him to be the best father I could imagine for my future children. I owe so much to you, without you none of my future blessings as a wife and mother could be possible.

To all of my grandmothers that found it important to teach my parents the Gospel of Jesus Christ. For teaching them to love the lord with all of their heart and to put him first in all things. For showing them the kind of faith that they found it important to teach me. For raising my parents to be the best versions of themselves and always supporting them through their endeavors.

I owe everything to so many of you wonderful mothers out there. I am so thankful for each of you. I have a long time before I am a mother or wife, however, when that time comes I want you to know that I will be prepared and ready because of the amazing examples I have seen by each and every one of you ever since I was a little girl. I love all you mothers and thank you for your endless sacrifice and love and for your willingness to take on a 24/7 job just for your families. Here's to you!
