A mother is a person who seeing there are only four pieces of pie for five people, promptly announces she never did care for pie.
– Tenneva Jordan
Most of us could say, with Abraham Lincoln, “All that I am or hope to be, I owe to my angel mother.”
– James E. Faust
I carry my father’s name and am glad. But it’s the constancy of motherhood that brings clarity and confidence to what I do with that name. To all the mothers who gave me, my daughters, my siblings, and my friends the gifts of life and love, I say without the slightest hesitation that nearly all good things I’ve ever known from my God were passed through you along the way.
Happy Mother’s Day.
