Mothers Day

My Mothers Day this year was full of Mothering.  Croix was (still is) sick again.  I got to clean up vomit, and snuggle and comfort my sick child.  I also had the lesson in Young Womens.  Both were a bit stressful, and certainly not relaxing.  But I am so grateful for the opportunity to have a sick child to care for.  As I was cleaning up vomit I thought as least I get to experience this.  As I taught the YW I thought how lucky I am to be able to help them learn about the temple.

I loved the speakers we had in sacrament meeting.  One talk in particular stood out to me.  The brother who spoke talked about how being a Mother is more than just bearing children.  You Mother every time you show Mothering attributes, like Charity, love, compassion, kindness, service.  Having struggle with infertility I really loved that this was mention and emphasized on Mothers Day.

I love be in Mother more than anything in the world.  I'm so blessed to get to have that opportunity.  I love this job, and all that come with it!

I understand what you mean. Mothering never gets a day off but my friend and I were also talking about how great it is that we get to be mothers and have the experience to care for kids. What if we didn't. Great attitude.
