dear future husband:
i am so grateful to my parents. my mother is a wise, wise woman. remember her sage advice, here and here? yeah, i am so grateful that she’s so amazing. i’m also so grateful that she met and fell in love with my father. he, too, is such a great example.
i can only hope that i will be that type of parent. i remember him teaching me valuable spiritual lessons: following the prophets, no matter what; paying your tithing; loving the Lord with all your heart. those sorts of things.
recently, i’ve started wondering how i would react if one of my children left the Church. i have relatives who have left, and i have seen inactivity first hand. its hard. i don’t know how i would react. hopefully, though, we will have raised them in such a way that they will return. hopefully, we will love them enough that somehow, and at sometime they will return.
ps. i really want to be a mother. don’t let my beliefs about women’s rights confuse you. i think motherhood is the best calling a person can hope for.
