Today was Mother's Day. But in reality, everyday is mother's day. I am a mother 24/7 and I am thankful to my Heavenly Father for giving me the opportunity to be a mother.
Almost 19 years ago I was given my first shot at being a mom when I married Kent. Wow, 22 years old, a new husband and two children with one "I do." I can look back now and laugh, shed tears and be thankful for the lessons I learned and the chance I was given to be a part of their lives-it was like a trial run. I only wish I would have been given the mother's manual ahead of time so I could have studied more. I would like to thank both of those girls for allowing me to be apart of their lives then and now, and for including me when they celebrate Mother's Day.
I am also thankful for the three beautiful children Heavenly Father blessed me with and the opportunity I have been given to raise them. I love being a mother and I am rewarded every day as I watch them grow and change right before my eyes. Today in church the talk focused on mothers who know. I hope I am a mother who knows and I hope I am passing on to all five of my children, the values of life, family and the gospel. I know how quickly we can become involved in life and the things happening around us but as I look back and look to the future I hope I am creating memories and values that my children will carry with them.
Thanks for picking me to be your mom! I love everything about all of you! I am proud of my family and I hope each of my children know that you are everything to me.
I learned from my mother who knew and my awesome grandmother who knew. Each taught me the value of family! I pray that I can continue to pass what I know on to you and that our family will be one who knows!
