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.
