Crochet: Forget Me Not Flower
One of the most meaningful and lasting discourses to women in the Church was President Dieter F. Uchtdorf's talk Forget Me Not from the October 2011 General Relief Society Meeting. He provided a list of five reminders, corresponding to the Forget-Me-Not's five petals, that apply to every women of every age.
- Forget not to be patient with yourself
- Forget not the difference between a good sacrifice and a foolish one
- Forget not to be happy now
- Forget not the "why" of the gospel
- Forget not that the Lord loves you
There is something in these reminders that will serve any woman we visit teach. Crocheting a cute Forget-Me-Not flower to go with the message can serve as a helpful reminder. Attaching a magnet to the back will allow it to be placed on the refrigerator or a bathroom mirror. With Christmas coming, it can also be a meaningful gift when attached to a headband, bracelet, or even a scarf.
Visiting teaching can be difficult during the holidays, due to traveling and conflicting schedules. But the holidays can also be difficult for those in need of comfort. A simple gift can help the women we visit teach to feel loved and remembered.
