I truly am grateful to be a mother. Aside from being a wife, it is the most important role that I have in life. I am happy that God has given me 3 children to love and 2 more who are on their way to being in our family. My perception of being a mother has changed in the past 9 years. I used to think that if you were just doing everything right (as a mother) that your children would behave just as they should and life would be smooth sailing as a parent. I am here to report that this is faulty logic and that I am not doing everything (though still trying!) and my children don't behave just as they should, but I love them and I love being their mama.
Today wouldn't be complete without a big THANK YOU to my dear mother. Mom, thank you for raising me in the gospel of Jesus Christ. Thank you for loving me and teaching me to cook, clean, be organized, and be a good wife and mama to my family. I love you!
