Welcome to a special Mother's Day Edition of Songs for the Sabbath.
I hope you enjoy it, but more importantly, I hope you have a very happy Mother's Day.
Whether you are a mother or not, you still have the divine nature to be a mother and have opportunities all around you to be a "mother" in someone's life. I hope that you can follow the guidance of a loving Heavenly Father as He helps you to recognize those opportunities in your life.
I love being a mom.
It is my favorite thing...ever.
Can you blame me when I have kids that are as amazing as these hooligans are?
But seriously, I just love being a mom. I love everything about it, even on the days when I dislike everything about it. I wouldn't trade it for any other job in the world (although sometimes my kids probably wonder, especially when I spend too much time on the computer instead of being with them.) But each day I try to be a little better, a little more attentive, and a lot more kind. I hope that my kids know that I am trying. But more importantly, I hope they know how much I love them.
As I was gathering my thoughts for this post, I thought I would look back over my posts from previous Mother's Days and see what I could find. I was not disappointed. I came across this post that I wrote in 2015. It brought tears to my eyes and I felt like I needed to share it again because the feelings that I felt while writing this post have only magnified over the last two years.
I cannot leave this post without sharing one of my all-time favorite songs about motherhood. Every time I hear it, I feel my heart swell with gratitude because of my opportunity to be a mother.
Walk You Through the Night- Mercy River
Happy Mother's Day to every, single, amazing woman out there.
Remember that you are divine and you inherited divine qualities not only from a Heavenly Father, but a Heavenly Mother as well.
On this Mother's Day, I express my gratitude for my Heavenly Parents and my earthly parents, especially my own mother.
She is a wonderful example to me of true motherly love. From changing my diapers, to being my chauffeur, chef, and cheerleader, to practically moving in with me when each of my children were born and when I was going through cancer treatments, she is simply the best and I love her with all my heart.
I am loving my second chance at life.
