I Often Go Walking

I often go walking in meadows of clover,
And I gather armfuls of blossoms of blue.
I gather the blossoms the whole meadow over;
Dear mother, all flowers remind me of you.
O mother, I give you my love with each flower.
To give forth sweet fragrance a whole lifetime through;
For if I love blossoms and meadows and walking,
I learn how to love them, dear mother from you.

This sweet, simple primary song made me think about all of the different and unique qualities my mother has, and about everything I have learned from her. She has showed me how to enjoy the simple things in life, and she's taught me there is nothing more important than serving your family, serving your children. I hope I can be the same selfless mother she's always been. Thanks mom, for being the best mother and my best friend!

Happy Mother's Day!
