Mother's Day

Mother's day is always a hard day for me. So I am reaching out. I lost my mother 5 years ago yesterday, so having her anniversary and mothers day so close has been a double whammy.

Church, although very hard (i cried all three meetings), was where I needed to be. I almost did not go, due to feeling so emotionally overwhelmed. Decided in the end I needed to be there, for if I did not go, who knows what would have happened. I may have succumbed to the adversary.

I pray for those today who have lost their mother or a loved one that they may have a spirit of peace and comfort with them as I have had.


"Sorry you lost your mom. My dad died the week before Christmas, so I know how it is hard to have a holiday close to the loss of a parent. I'm glad you found some peace and comfort. Mother's Day is hard for me too. It is such a reminder of how my life isn't what I want. It's supposed to be a day off, but I have no husband to take care of the kids and give me a day off. I didn't go to church today. I used being sick as an excuse to stay home. Hang in there!"

"[The Savior] is saying to us, "Trust me, learn of me, do what I do. Then, when you walk where I am going," He says, "we can talk about where you are going, and the problems you face and the troubles you have. If you will follow me, I will lead you out of darkness," He promises. "I will give you answers to your prayers. I will give you rest to your souls.""
