I want to give a personal and heartfelt thank you to all the mothers, aunts, grandmothers, sisters, cousins and fellow women in the world. Many of you if not all have dedicated your life to blessing your loved ones. This day, if not already everyday, I hope you know how much you are truly appreciated. I don’t know where I would be without the wonderful women in my life especially my dear mother. Thank you Mom, for all that you have done for me. I hope that you know how much I love you.
This is such a wonderful quote given in October 2004 and I felt it appropriate to share it today.
“The women in our lives are creatures endowed with particular qualities, divine qualities, which cause them to reach out in kindness and with love to those about them. We can encourage that outreach if we will give them opportunity to give expression to the talents and impulses that lie within them. In our old age my beloved companion said to me quietly one evening, ‘You have always given me wings to fly, and I have loved you for it.’ […]
How thankful I am, how thankful we all must be, for the women in our lives. God bless them. May His great love distill upon them and crown them with luster and beauty, grace and faith. And may His Spirit distill upon us as men and lead us ever to hold them in respect, in gratitude, giving encouragement, strength, nurture, and love, which is the very essence of the gospel of our Redeemer and Lord. For this I humbly pray, in the sacred name of Jesus Christ, amen.” -Gordon B. Hinkley The Women in Our Lives
