This month is a very special time for millions of women around the world. Many may not know who they are because they do not make a fuss about their work or what they do; they go about it quietly letting their work speak for them. While they don’t talk about their work, I will, but only for this week.
At 14, I joined The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. At 18, I joined Relief Society, the largest female women organization in the world. What a blessing for an 18 year old to learn from and with a 28, 38, 48, 58, 78, 88, or 108 older wise experienced women!! One woman I observed at that age and continue to observe for how the work of Relief Society is done is my own mother. In my home, she was prayerful, possessed such faith and courage to raise her family with so little means. She took care of other sisters/women, observant of their needs and served them. She shared her clothes with them, found clothes for their kids, shared mats she wove so they had something to sleep on, gave them food, and bore testimony of God and Jesus Christ. She tenderly cared for the elderly because she loved them. She hasn’t stopped doing these things. She loves to serve wherever she is needed. What a blessing Relief Society is! “The errand of angels is given to women to do whatsoever is gentle and human, to cheer and to bless in humanity’s name.”
