Mama B.




She's tiny, and humble, and consumed with service, temple work, and others. I think she's only on this Earth for the rest of us because I'm fairly certain she's done. She's learned all those lessons that make you kinder, more selfless, less judgemental, and more obedient. I can't imagine she could possess an ounce more of any of those traits. She's sent all four of her boys on missions, (Ross was the first and I'm pretty sure she cried for two years... but she did it.) And has enjoyed the temple marriages of her first three children (again, Ross was the first and she may have cried for another year or so... but she let me have him and has treated my like gold ever since.) She taught her boys to be both strong and gentle; SO respectful of women; designed to be fathers. She is her daughter's best friend and has been throughout her life. She makes motherhood look like what it is: divine. Yesterday was her 60th birthday. Happy Birthday Mama B.!

I'm glad you realize what a blessing amazing mom-in-laws are! She sounds perfect, and that will make your life sooooo much better :) I have one of those and I am thankful for her everyday....she is one of a kind, and I'm finding it's uncommon to truly LOVE your MIL. Happy b-day to her!

I couldn't agree with you more about her. She did raise the sweetest, good family. She was my young women's president and so loving and fun. Happy 60th Sister Biesinger!

I've heard all about how wonderful she is for years from Laurel Bogner. I too understand what it's like to have such a fabulous mother-in-law! It truly is a blessing. No wonder Ross turned out so well....his mom sounds wonderful!

I tried to call her- She is even a mama B to me! I love sister B. so much and i have learned a lot from her. I can't believe she turned 60- that was something I didn't know and she sure doesn't look it! Happy B-day my friend!
