me + mom

I love this correspondence sent to a former President of the LDS church..

"Here is a beautiful tribute by a son to his mother: “I don’t remember much about her views of voting nor her social prestige; and what her ideas on child training, diet, and eugenics were, I cannot recall. The main thing that sifts back to me now through the thick undergrowth of years is that she loved me. She liked to lie on the grass with me and tell stories, or to run and hide with us children. She was always hugging me. And I liked it. She had a sunny face. To me it was like God, and all the beatitudes saints tell of Him. And sing! Of all the sensations pleasurable to my life nothing can compare with the rapture of crawling up into her lap and going to sleep while she swung to and fro in her rocking chair and sang. Thinking of this, I wonder if the woman of today, with all her tremendous notions and plans, realizes what an almighty factor she is in shaping of her child for weal or woe. I wonder if she realizes how much sheer love and attention count for in a child’s life.”" [source]

Mothers, and those who mother, make this world what it is.

happy mother's weekend.
give your ma a kiss for me.


  1. what a perfect quote! thanks so much for sharing!

  2. I love our description of mornings! My favorite mornings are those when I actually pull myself out of bed early and sit with a hot cup of coffee, while reading and praying for the day. It is a peaceful and restoring time. And of course a bowl of hot oats with berries is usually near!
