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.
x leslie
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.
