I See... A Heavenly Mother's Day

I See... A Heavenly Mother's Day

(Warning: This is deep gospel doctrine according to the Mormon Third Eye and no one else)

For 363 days every year, mothers carry a heavy load relatively unsung by worldly standards.. They are changing our diapers, wiping our noses, washing our clothes, cooking our meals, driving us everywhere, and teaching us the gospel in our bedtime stories, our family nights, and at our dinner tables. None of these activities brings them national acclaim but brings us closer to heaven if we want them to. Then one day a year, Mother's Day, we turn around and thank them, and somehow think it is enough. The miracle is that they do.

We know that the family is an eternal unit patterned after a heavenly plan. We hear literally nothing about our Heavenly Mother- all we have is a plural clue from that precious line from the Proclamation to the World on the Family: “Each is a beloved spirit son or daughter of heavenly parents, and, as such, each has a divine nature and destiny.” Now I think I know why. Could she be filling that same unsung role in our Heavenly Family? If this is true, then for the past six thousand years at least could she be taking care of incredibly important unsung eternal duty? At some point in our endless future will the day of the Lord (which is a thousand years to us) come when we will get to celebrate our Heavenly Mother's Day?

If it's true, I look forward to that day. If not, I look forward to knowing why. Either way, it's going to be a great Heavenly Mother's Day.
