“To you who are parents, I say, show love to your children. You know you love them, but make certain they know it as well. They are so precious. Let them know. Call upon our Heavenly Father for help as you care for their needs each day and as you deal with the challenges which inevitably come with parenthood. You need more than your own wisdom in rearing them.” –Thomas S. Monson

 

In a blender place: 1 can frozen limeade, 1/2 can sprite, 2 cups frozen strawberries, and the pulp of two limes.  Blend it up and drink it down.
