On this special day set apart to celebrate motherhood and womanhood I wanted to send home a letter to each of you and thank you personally for all that you have done and continue to do. i want to thank you for all of your support and help in getting me to this stage of my life. I wish I could send each of you a letter of this heartfelt gratefulness towards you but sadly my time constraint is something that I must learn to do the best I can with what I have.
So here is a letter to the women of my life as a whole but the words are to each of you personally.
On this special day I want to thank you for all that you have done and keep doing. You each have played and continue to play an influential role in my life and the lives of others. Your examples of Christ-like charity, giving of your time and talents for the benefit of others so freely is one thing that I personally admire and appreciate and will always remember. Thank you for doing that you do because each of you play a special part within the church and within the lives of those around you.
Just as Elder Geoffry R. Hollad said "The work of a [woman] is hard, too often unheralded work, please know that it is worth it then, now and forever." I want to tell you that all you do and continue to do is appreciated and thanks enough can never truly be given. Each person that has experienced the light of Christ through your wonderful examples is eternally grateful because in some degree, you have changed their life forever for the better.
Thank you for all of the time and effort that you have willingly sacrificed so that others may simply just have a better day or that they may be happy. These small acts of care and love are the ones most appreciated and close to the hearts of whom you've influenced. Just by your example and willingness to serve, you have performed miracles in the lives of those you have touched.
I will always be grateful to each of you in how you have touched my life and changed it for the better, thank you. I leave you with my testimony that I know that the church is true. I know that Joseph Smith saw God and Jesus Christ and that they live and love each one of us. I know that the power of prayer is real and that we can speak with our Father in Heaven anytime that we need to , anytime we desire, we can speak to him at any time and He will speak to us. That is a promise that He gives because He loves us and is proud of us. I know that families can be forever and that in God's family we will always find a true and everlasting happiness.
These things I know and say in the sacred name of our loving Saviour, Jesus Christ. Amen.
Sincerely with love,
Elder Zachary Lee Dotschkat
