Mother, I do. Father in Heaven has sent me to you. When I am near you I want to hear you singing so softly that you love me too. Mother, I love you. I love you. I do!
Okay, maybe I don't want to hear my mom singing, but I love to be near her and feel of her love.
Yesterday was a busy day for me. All of the mothers I love so much left me alone to take care of Sunday dinner. They were all with their mothers - my mom and sister went to California to visit my grandma. My sister-in-law Shelbie went to Kanab to be with her mom. And my other sister-in-law Lexi spent the day with her family. We did invite my Grandma (dad's mom) over for dinner. It was nice to be with her and she was helpful. Needless to say, I didn't have time for the computer and blogging.
I went to bed last night with a deep love for my children, but feeling incredibly indadequate and unable to measure up to the perfect examples of motherhood around me. I feel like part of my feelings right now are satan telling me I can't do it. But, part is a true realization that I need to try a little harder to be a little better.
My mother is a great strength to me in my life right now. Whenever I feel sad about my children growing up and leaving my home, I think about the relationship I have with my mom right now. Of course, my mother raised me and did a fabulous job being a mom in my younger years. But, she continues to mother me (and all around her) in amazing ways. I am forever grateful for her. Which makes me forever grateful for her mother too. I feel I will never measure up to these women, but I need to and will try my hardest!
Happy Mother's Day!
