I love Mother's Day. I know it's not an ideal day for everyone, but I think it is so important to celebrate a day set side for women/mother's. I find such purpose in being a mother. (All women who nurture a child/children are mother's whether you've given birth or not) This is a day to celebrate women, and we deserve to be celebrated!
Mother's day is never a day for me to feel guilty. I refuse! Mother's day is a day to be honored.
"There is no one perfect way to be a good mother." -Elder Russell M. Ballard
I have never met a mother who hasn't made a few mistakes along the way. I have also never met a mother who hasn't done the best that they were capable of doing. Whatever that may be...if it is their best...then it is good enough.
I LOVE the sacred calling of being a mother. It is hard. It is exhausting. But it is also divine, rewarding, and wonderful.
I am thankful the women in my life who have mothered me, especially for my mother, my mother-in-law, and my step-mom. I have been blessed.
I want to thank these little people for letting me be their mother. For being patient with my short-comings. For teaching me everyday. For accepting my love and loving me in return. Love you all more than you will ever know.
Ken and the kids also did a great job spoiling me this year.
On top of what you can see I got sweet love notes from Ken and each of the kids. They made me breakfast and dinner. The kids gave me treats and cards and flowers and handprints. One of my best gifts was hearing Kaylie give a beautiful tribute to mothers in sacrament meeting. She did a lovely job and the spirit of the meeting was very strong. That was a proud mommy moment!
I am a lucky mother!
Listen to the darling words of some of my little people...
