We just returned from a trip to Utah to visit my side of the family. There, my family attended my cousin’s baby shower and threw a joint surprise birthday party for my husband Albert and second daughter Chloe! It was so fun! I also managed to surprise my own mama with a delicious strawberry shortcake cake for Mother’s Day. We also visited my sweet grandmother at the nursing care center and it was so special to see her!
My husband and kids showered me with flowers, homemade presents, and lots of kisses and hugs! All of the festivities around Mother’s Day got me thinking that the the best life. mom life. Albert gave me a beautiful tribute at the party and expressed his love for me and how grateful he was that I was a great mother! This is the best compliment anyone could ever give me! I take my job as mommy very seriously.
Being a mother is the most hard thing I have ever done in my life. But, I know with the hard things the rewards are great and a lot of life lessons are learned. Why, is it hard? Well, to be quite honest it is because I can be impatient, self-absorbed, and stubborn (to name a few LOL!). It is through motherhood and God’s refining power that I am made patience, selfless, and charitable.
What becomes my weaknesses will eventually become my strengths. Through motherhood Heavenly Father’s gentle tutoring takes place and I become the woman He wants me to be.
Motherhood has changed my life. I am humbled that I have been entrusted with three angels called my kids. To all my female friends who are reading this — I salute you for your energy, love, and kindness to all children. The “children” in your life could be your biological children, students, church youth, neighborhood kids, family relatives, and even furry friends.
the best life. mom life. Let’s step outside the standard definition of “mom” and consider it a position in which you offer care and concern for someone other than yourself.
The point is as women we have a strong influence for good. We have the ability to offer tenderness, compassion, and solace to all those who are in need. Some are silently suffering. Never underestimate your influence. The power of a smile, a listening ear, or hug.
Take an active role in being a light and a force for good. I opened my heart today more than I normally do. Thank you for reading this and sending me your positive vibes. I am excited to hear from you and your thoughts about today’s blog post.
