Forget-Me-Not Flower Pin
Copyright Beverly A. Qualheim 2011
This is a little pin I created after watching President Dieter F. Uchtdorf's talk at Relief Society General Meeting on Sept. 24, 2011
"You are not forgotten. Sisters, wherever you are, whatever the circumstances may be, you are not forgotten. No matter how dark your days may seem, no matter how insignificant you may feel, no matter how overshadowed you think you may be, your Heavenly Father has not forgotten you. In fact, He loves you, with an infinite love.- President Dieter F. Uchtdorf
