This is a book based off a talk that President Uchtdorf gave at an lds general conference. It is a book that talks about the forget me not flower and how we can use it as a symbol of the Lords Love for us. He talks about the 5 petals that are on the forget me not flower and the 5 things we need to remember when we see the forget me not flower. I REALLY love this book. It is a great short read for those days when you are feeling down. He helps remind you of just how special you are in our Heavenly Fathers eyes. It is directed towards women but I think it's a great read for anyone.
"You are closer to heaven than you suppose. You are destined for more than you can possibly imagine. Inspired by the five petals of the tiny forget-me-not flower, President Dieter F. Uchtdorf reminds us of five things we would be wise never to forget: to be patient with ourselves; to distinguish between a good sacrifice and a foolish sacrifice; to be happy now; to focus on the why of the gospel; and to know that the Lord loves each of us infinitely. Our journey toward perfection may be long, but we can find wonder and delight in even the tiniest steps in that journey. Like the forget-me-nots, our successes may seem tiny to us and may often go unnoticed by others, but God notices them and they are not small to Him."
