My greatest aspiration is to be somebody's wife,
|Ezra Taft Benson & Flora.|
and to be someone's mom.
|Cornelia, mother of the Gracchi|
When I think of the sweetest part of life,
I think of being close to people.
I want to be close to people
and help them
in the most personal way.
I want to decorate the house for Thanksgiving,
and make it warm
and help them feel like the world is exciting and good.
I want to sit at the kitchen table and listen.
I want to pack lunches.
Life is hard enough;
I want to make it softer and brighter.
There is more substance to you when you live for other people.
I hope that in these desires you will find me beyond reproach.
