I want to know what your ward did for the big day. Did the speakers talk specifically on motherhood? Were there any flashes of brilliance or cringe worthy moments? Did the Primary kids adorably scream-sing “I Often Go Walking”? Did anyone mention Heavenly Mother? Were gifts given? Was it a thing the moms are expected to keep alive?
My contribution is secondhand because my husband I were visiting friends and family in Las Vegas and their ward started at 8:30. 8:30! Mother’s Day is usually awkward for the childless Mormon anyway, so we were both down with skipping. I regretted it immediately, though, when my brother-in-law returned with his report: The Elder’s Quorum sang all three verses of Love at Home plus a bonus invented verse glorifying moms who drive their children to school and sports. My husband crooned ♫ There is beauty all around when moms stay at home ♫ for the rest of the day, and it never got less funny.
