I try to remember this every day. And I try to remind others of the same. We are only here on earth for a short time. Remember that we are on earth with three things to accomplish. We are here to Teach, Learn and Love. Nothing else matters. Do Your Part.
Being a mother has never been an easy role. Some of the oldest writings in the world admonish us not to forsake the law of our mother, instruct us that a foolish son is the heaviness of his mother, and warn us not to ignore our mother when she is old. The scriptures also remind us that what we learn from our mothers comprises our very core values.
I bear my testimony to you that this work is true, that our Savior lives, and that He guides and directs His Church here upon the earth. I leave with you my witness and my testimony that God our Eternal Father lives and loves us. He is indeed our Father, and He is personal and real. May we realize and understand how close to us He is willing to come, how far He is willing to go to help us, how much He loves us, and how much He does and is willing to do for us. Thomas S. Monson
