Listen To Your Mother--Lucia, Our Light

Tuesday, July 19, 2016
It's my mom's birthday this week. (July 22nd to be exact). What perfect timing that the video footage from the "Listen to Your Mother" show I participated in was just released.

With everything going on in the world right now, my heart is yearning to share this with all of you. Whether it's your mother, father, friend, sister, brother, coworker, or spouse who is helping you through your struggles, I deeply hope you have SOMEONE cheering you on. If not, please know that I am.

Please also note this is a READING. Not a speech, performance, or presentation.

But lastly, Happy Birthday, Mom. I love you.


  1. So very wonderful Molly, thank you. -- Melissa (Mills) Spencer ;)

  2. Molly Bice Jackson you are a breathtakingly beautiful in spirit and body. Thank you for sharing your heart and soul and depths of experience with the rest of us. XOXO

  3. Molly, thank you so much for this beautiful message. You may not remember me but I reached out to you several years ago when my sweet little boy died after choking on a fruit snack. I revisited your blog today by happenstance and found this entry and it resonated with me so much that I began to weep. I haven't wept like that, for the loss of my sweet boy, for awhile. It felt good. So, thank you. Thank you for sharing such tender experiences.

    Also, we welcomed twins into the world last year on July 22nd. It must be a good day to be born!

    Much love, Julie Hall

  4. Oh Molly. Your reading is so touching and beautiful and given with such love. My own mother passed away 7 short months after my husband. I cherished those 7 months from August 2008 to March 2009. She gave me such good advice, held me in her arms, cried with me, laughed with me, and told me again and again that it was going to be OK. You see she had already buried my dad after 50 years of marriage. She remarried after my dad passed away and was married to my darling step dad for 12 years. My step dad passed away only 7 weeks before she did. I remember a good bishop telling me after we adopted our son back in 1983 that I was now a mother. He said that title can never be taken away from me. Like you said, in life or death, you will always be Lucy's mother (plus those other two shitlins mother!!) Thank you for sharing the reading and for being an inspiration to this grandma.
