You Are Not Forgotten

As a child, when I would look at the little forget-me-nots, I sometimes felt a little like that flower—small and very insignificant. I wondered if I would be forgotten by my family or by my Heavenly Father.
Years later, I can look back on that young boy with tenderness and compassion. And I do know now I was never forgotten.
And I know something else. As an Apostle of our Master, Jesus Christ, I proclaim with all the certainty and conviction of my heart and soul—neither are you!
You are not forgotten.
Sisters, wherever you are, whatever the circumstances may be, you are not forgotten. No matter how dark your days may seem, no matter how insignificant you may feel, no matter how overshadowed you think you may be, your Heavenly Father has not forgotten you. In fact, He loves you, with an infinite love.
—President Dieter F. Uchtdorf

This was one of my favorite moments from the General Relief Society Meeting last night.  I add my testimony to President Uchtdorf's, that I know that I am a daughter of a Heavenly Father who loves me and knows my trials and triumphs, my heartaches and my happiness.  And that I am not alone.  I am not forgotten.

You can find this and other highlights from the meeting here.

Also, I was a member of the choir that sang last night at the conference!

It was such a great meeting last night. It is so easy for me to forget everything we heard, just last night. Thank you for posting this!! I'm so grateful that we have almost immediate access to reread and listen to these messages!

I wondered if you might be in the choir! Cool! I looked for you, but never spotted you.
