My mother is an amazing person who is literally wearing out her life in the service of the Lord, her family, and her fellowman. She is someone who knows the meaning of sacrifice, and if she has been afraid of it, she has gone ahead and sacrificed anyway. She is truly a woman of God. Following the example of the Savior she has carried many burdens on others' behalf. Her light does cause those in her path to glorify their Father in Heaven. If I have any hope of being like her I will strive for it. For now, I will walk behind her, learn at her feet and hope some of her faith and goodness rub off on me, or that it's some how genetic. She will probably be embarrassed that I wrote this, but I wanted to pay her a small tribute in this way.
