mama's day

"There is no role in life more essential and more eternal than that of motherhood."
all quotes taken from Elder Ballard's talk
"Recognize that the joy of motherhood comes in moments.
There will be hard times and frustrating times.
But amid the challenges,
there are shining moments of joy and satisfaction."
"What matters is that a mother loves her children deeply and,
in keeping with the devotion she has for God and her husband,
prioritizes them above all else."

I just love these children of mine.
How wonderful that they are mine for always.
I hope your day was most extra special,
all you dear mothers!

  10. The pictures are so beautiful! Your kids are so lucky to have such an awesome mom! Where did you take the first several pictures?

  12. Wow, what beautiful photos! Got me all choked up, the photos along with the words....ahhh, it doesn't help that I'm hormonal right now, but this post just touched me so much. Motherhood IS so wonderful. I love how you cherish every momentwith your children. Your love shines through your blog. I can only imagine the power it has in person :)

  13. Wow! Another vote of approval for the photographer. Particulary good is the photo of the tiny baby getting thrown in the air. I love the fact that your arms and the tree branches are all pointing in the same direction. It is almost as though the trees are also surrounding her and playing with her. Very well done!


Thank you for going the extra mile to leave a note. xoxo
