Chocolate for Mother’s Day

By Rebecca | April 21, 2008

It is a tradition in many wards for the youth to present some token of appreciation to the women of the ward on Mother’s Day. Often this simple token consists of a small plant or a single cut flower. In one ward the youth actually made coursages during the week and delivered them to each sister the day before Mother’s Day. (The ward boundaries encompassed less than one square mile making such an undertaking feasible.)

However, my favorite Mother’s Day present from the youth was a king size chocolate bar.

The outer wrapper of the candy had been removed, leaving the chocolate wrapped in the shiny under-wrapper. Then the youth had used a computer and printer to create a special wrapper for the bar that expressed their gratitude for mothers and motherhood. These were glued around the chocolate bars so that they looked like the genuine wrapper for the product.

The quote by Thomas S. Monson reads:

One cannot forget mother and remember God. One cannot remember mother and forget God. Why? Because these two sacred persons, God and Mother, partners in creation, in love, in sacrifice, in service, are as one.

It was a thoughtful, tasty Mother’s Day treat.
