It's good to be a mom.

I have been thinking a lot lately about trying to find more joy in being a mom. I know it is a divine calling. I know that my influence on my home and family is a big one, and irreplaceable. Even knowing all of this, sometimes I lose sight of my role and give in to the daily stresses. (Yes, there is even some griping involved.) But I will keep at it. And it sure is easier when I can remember these precious relationships we're building aren't just for this life, but can carry on into the eternities.

I love reading The Family: A Proclamation to the World, and remembering car rides spent memorizing it with my hubby. (We're probably a bit rusty these days.) I love peeking in on my sleeping babies, and peeking in on my hubby peeking in on our sleeping babies. I love seeing how happy my little Chasey gets when I come around his corner in the morning. I love finding out how clever my Ellie belly really is, and helpful too. I love all of these little reminders that it's good to be a mom.

I also love the three wonderful mother's in my life. And their mother's for having them. (This could go on and on.) Happy Mother's Day.
