Just for Moms...

I was so moved by this quote, I wanted to post it here, all by itself. It comes from Neil A. Maxwell and you can read the complete talk here. Have a Happy Monday!

We salute you, sisters, for the joy that is yours as you rejoice in a baby’s first smile and as you listen with eager ear to a child’s first day at school which bespeaks a special selflessness. Women, more quickly than others, will understand the possible dangers when the word self is militantly placed before other words like fulfillment. You rock a sobbing child without wondering if today’s world is passing you by, because you know you hold tomorrow tightly in your arms.

I have not read this talk--and don't recall hearing it, either. What a beautiful quote. I think I'm going to go hold my little girl now.
