Motherhood is not easy. The past couple of weeks have shown my son (as well as myself) the hard facts of life. He has had 3 mouth injuries (one resulting in two chipped teeth), two dentist appointments (need I say more?), a semi-serious hand injury and has traveled across the country. My mother has 5 children. Needless to say, but I’m going to say it anyway, I have a lot of respect for my mother.
Mother’s Day is this Sunday (you can thank me if this is news to you, you still have half a week). I get to be with my mom this Mother’s day. I’m in Utah visiting my family and so far this vacation has been fabulous. I have been spending lots of time with my mom and I have really been overcome with gratitude for her. She is everything a mother should be and most importantly she is a partner with God. She raised us to love God and to keep his commandments and for that I will be forever grateful. Here’s to my mother and all the other mothers out there doing their best—God is with you.
