I am so thankful for November 9. It's one of my favorite days because it marks the day my mother was brought into the world. Not only is she essential to my existence, but she has been so fundamental in shaping who I am. And I love her, of course!
Because of Mom, I know the temple is important, and I know that serving others is what makes us happy in life. I know that love means sacrifice and selflessness, because that is how my mother is. She is the most charitable person I know - so giving of her time and talents and warmth. I am trying every day to be more like her. I hope I can be the kind of mother she is.
