Reflecting on My Mother This Mother's Day

Whether you are a mother or have a mother, this is a special holiday to reflect on the sacrifice mothers make to bring children into the world and raise them. I have been blessed to be the mother of 7 amazing, talented children. I love each of them and have adored raising them.

But I want to honor my own mother, Maria Torres McCune, who raised me. Here is her bridal portrait. Lovely!

And here she is as an LDS missionary in El Salvador. Beautiful!

This picture was taken at my Gold and Green Ball. Look at her radiant eyes.

And here she is at the side of my Dad, supporting him as he served as the Santiago Chile MTC president.

I love you Mom! Thank you for your devotion to our family, the Gospel and your sweet spirit. You are forever an example to me of "love thy neighbor as thyself." Viva La Maria Pequena. Happy Mother's Day!

And Happy Mother's Day to all of my readers!


  1. Your mom seems like an amazing woman.

  2. Somehow this is not a surprise to me and no, I've never met you or your sweet mother. I found out years ago that generally speaking, it takes a great lady to make (or raise) a great lady and pretty sure you two are a classic example of this. Your writing shows that all too well.

    Enjoy your mom while you can. Be Well and enjoy!
