I am sure everyone has seen this by now, but if not--you must!
Motherhood is divine! I am learning that fact bit by bit. I had a realization last week that taught me the importance of keeping a home. I sometimes feel that my wifely and motherly duties of taking care of a home are dull and meaningless. It is draining, exhausting and downright mundane to cook, clean, do laundry, iron (for some women!), run errands and chase after little ones.
But I realized that through these tasks I am making our home a nice place to be. A place where my family enjoys each other and where we like to spend our time. The home is the most sacred place on earth besides the temple. What an AMAZING responsibility we have as mothers to keep our homes clean and comfortable. Imagine if we viewed our homes the way we look at caring for our church buildings or temples. I think I would find much more satisfaction in my day-to-day tasks.
On another note, I am so grateful for my own mother. She has taught me so many things and inspired me to be a better woman. She has taught me so many things from cleaning and laundry to budgeting and saving to relying on the Lord through trials. She has taught me to keep on going... I love her so much!
Happy Mother's Day to all the other women in my life! Each and every one of you inspire me and teach me every day!
