Who knew that being a mother would be so rewarding? Yes, there are days that will try you like never before but there are so many more days that you'll be able to use those trials to make things turn out to be the best ever!
When you first look into your newborn baby's eyes, fresh from heaven you are filled with so much love your heart can barely contain itself.
As your child grows, so does your capacity to love. You welcome your second son into the family and you teach, learn and grow as a family with each new day.
You know there are more you need to shower with love so you welcome your first baby girl to the family. With play time, nap time, school, cartoons, yard work, house chores, grocery shopping, laundry, vacations, reading and changing diapers, you learn to manage your time so you can get everything done.
Motherhood can be exhausting but when your little boy brings you a handful of dandelions your heart melts and the exhaustion disappears. "I love you mama!"
Then your baby boy joins the wonderful adventure here on earth and the joy increases more than you thought possible! Camping trips, dinosaurs, princess dresses, doll houses, scouting, football and soccer. Bee stings, skinned knees, teepees in the backyard, crackers and chocolate chips.
Life as you know it changes for the better and your family is complete when your baby girl is born.
Kitty cats, painting, cowboys and indians, GI Joe's and Barbie's, homework, choir concerts, dancing, Eagle Scouts, Young Womanhood Awards, sewing, school plays, football championships, college, missions, marriage, dauther-in-law, grandchildren, and stories, writing, cowboy action shooting, archery, cars, and gardens.
We become a forever family by growing closer to God through trials of faith, hope in a bright future, and increasing our testimonies. Love between husband and wife grows with each amazing gift God sends to your home. You become better people as you work, play and love together.
All these amazing things have made life as a mother fulfilling and rewarding. I am so thankful for the blessings of my husband and children, motherhood, fatherhood and eternal families.
