May 9, 2016 Feliz Dia De La Madre!

Hola familia y amigos!

Fun fact: the only people who celebrate Cinco de Mayo are those who live in the state of Puebla, so while all of you were celebrating in the states, it was a normal day here. 

Here in Mexico we celebrate Mother's Day on May 10th, but I got to talk to the fam yesterday! It was so fun to hear from everyone and get some life updates. But the funniest part of it all was the fact that when I called, a mariachi band began to play right outside the window and there were like five chihuahas in the room with us. Classic Mexico. The only thing that was missing were the tacos haha.

On Saturday the elders had a baptism y after it ended and we were gonna lock up the building we took this sweet pic with our ward mission leader, his son, a counselor in the bishopric, and one of the sisters in the ward. Love these people!

Last night we received transfer calls and Hermana Franco & I are staying here together in Retornos to finish her training. Wohoo!

I hope that this week all of you have remembered all of the mothers, mother figures, and other important women in your lives. Yesterday I was reading all the talks I could find in the General Conference Liahonas that talked about women and mothers, and the conclusion I reached is that motherhood is such a sacred calling. Mothers emanate the pure love of our Savior Jesus Christ. Thank you to a handful of the wonderful women in my life--mom, Lori, Lisa, Stevie, Nicole, Amy, Michelle, Cortney. Larissa, Ally, Ashley, Lindsay, Erin, and Grandma just to name a you all and hope you were able to enjoy your special day! 

Con mucho amor, 
Hermana Bird
