Mother's Day

Our lives have been so busy lately with a million things but I need to take a moment to stop and reflect on all the blessings that I have been given. This past weekend I was able to see two of the most important people in my life and honor them. Mother's Day is always a special day. Auston and I are so grateful for the two amazing mothers that we have. I can't find the right words to describe truly how we feel about both of them. They make everything better in our lives. I am so grateful to their examples of motherhood and their Christlike love. As much as I love Mother's Day because we get to honor our Mother's I struggle a little bit. For the past four years Mother's Day has always been a little hard for me just due to the fact that I am not able to be a Mother. I have always wanted to be a mom more than anything but our Heavenly Father has a different plan for me right now. Yesterday in our Sacrament meeting the speaker talked about how every woman is a mother, even if she hasn't had the opportunity to give birth. He gave the example of how Adam called Eve "the mother of all living" before she had even born children of her own. Women are innately mothers from birth. We as women are nurturing, and loving. That gave peace to my heart and a whole new perspective on my life as a woman and daughter of God. I hope to one day be blessed to be a Mother to children of my own but until that time I will strive to have more faith in Heavenly Father's plan for me. I absolutely had the best Mother's Day weekend and we loved being able to spend time with our wonderful families.

I understand how Mother's Day can be a hard time, too... And sometimes it's hard to remember the big picture. But it will happen. Until then, we just get to play with cute nieces and nephews, right? :)
