Motherhood--ain't it great?

I know that every mother feels this way, but today as I looked into the eyes of my 6-month old baby, I just saw the miracle of who she is and how blessed I am to be her mother.  I have never had a bigger privilege than that of motherhood.  As I spend all day each and every day with her I recognize how much trust she has in me and how much trust my Father in Heaven has in me.  It is humbling and exhilerating all at once as I contemplate the role of motherhood.  I listen to my older children repeat things I do and believe things I believe and it causes me to take a minute and think about the importance of the way I live my life and raise and teach my children.  I love motherhood!  I love the sweet, tender spirit of a new born all the way up to the confident, sure-they-know-everything teenager.  It is a remarkable journey and I am so grateful today that I have been blessed enough in this life to have the opportunity of being a mother.  I would just like to say to all of those mothers out there--I know our Father in Heaven is proud of us and all of the hard work we do.  He knows we make mistakes, but He also knows we are the perfect ones for the job!  


  1. Paisley is lucky to have you all day every day! Your older children are great kids, truly great kids. They are smart, talented, and have good heads on their shoulders. I hope my kids turn out as good as yours have. It was so good to have you guys here this weekend. Glad you made it home safe and sound. See you this weekend!

  2. I LOVE her pictures!! She is such a little doll. I love the picture of you w/ her. I've never done that, but I love pictures like that! Your kids are lucky to have you as their mother. And once again, I'm glad you're the first one to go through the teenage years so when my kids are that age you will have all the answers for me!:)
