happy mother's day.

whether you're a mother or not, you should be celebrated on this day as a woman. we've all got that kind of love in our hearts that only women can possess, and it's something to be proud of. so if you're single, married with children, or married without, i celebrate you, and appreciate the beauty that you bring to this earth.
"I don't want to drive up to the pearly gates in a shiny sports car, wearing beautifully, tailored clothes, my hair expertly coiffed, and with long, perfectly manicured fingernails. I want to drive up in a station wagon that has mud on the wheels from taking kids to scout camp. I want to be there with a smudge of peanut butter on my shirt from making sandwiches for a sick neighbors children. I want to be there with a little dirt under my fingernails from helping to weed someone's garden. I want to be there with children's sticky kisses on my cheeks and the tears of a friend on my shoulder. I want the Lord to know I was really here and that I really lived." — Marjorie Pay Hinckley "We women have a lot to learn about simplifying our lives. We have to decide what is important and then move along at a pace that is comfortable for us. We have to develop the maturity to stop trying to prove something. We have to learn to be content with what we are." — Marjorie Pay Hinckley

Sis Hinckley was a very wise women. What she said, especially the last paragraph, is so true and we ALL need to listen to her.
