Look, Ma! No hands!

I don't know what that title means, but I have been asked to speak for ten minutes in church this Sunday. So, what would you, my imaginary readers, want to hear someone say on Mother's Day? (And what would you not want to hear?)

Let the comments flow like hot, hot tears.

--SAN GIOVANNI UMILIATO

(UPDATE: My congregation is composed of single people age 25-40. So there won't be many actual mothers in the audience.)

That's a tough assignment.

You have to make all the mothers feel great about themselves and not tell too great of stories because than they will have guilt issues.

You can't mention motherhood directly because those who can't have children for various reasons will be really hurt.

But the most tricky part is you want to talk about your own great mom without sounding like a momma's boy! :)

Good luck with that....that is an assignment I would never EVER want.

I recently wrote a blog entry about my feelings of motherhood...I double dog dare you to use it in your talk...search out "one word" on my blog.

My favorite part of my entry is when I make a omnipotent comparison....I thought it was catchy.

which I know you do, so why do I even try?

P.S. Make sure that you tell your ward that i was your very favorite sister missionary!
