Like so many others, President Dieter F. Uchtdorf's talk was my favorite. Below are some of the words that were the most touching.
When he spoke these words I was overcome with the truthfulness of them. I knew that my Heavenly Father knows me. He has not forgotten me. He knows what I am going through. He loves me. I already knew that, but at that moment I felt that truth so strongly in my heart. I am not forgotten. How grateful I am to have that reconfirmed to me.
Being there, I wondered how many other women there were that really are like me. How many of these woman have also experienced the death of their own child? I'm sure I was not the only one. I felt connected with these thousands of women that I don't even know. Just as I felt my Heavenly Father's love and admiration for me I felt love and admiration for these women! What a glorious group to be a part of! I nearly gave a hug to the stranger next to me, but I thought she might think I was a little bit crazy...so I refrained.
