"Motherhood is near to divinity. It is the highest, holiest service to be assumed by mankind. It places her who honors its holy calling and service next to the angels."
-The First Presidency of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints
After going to both our parent’s ward and our ward today (with looking up some conference quotes in between) I have been overwhelmed with mothers and the joy of motherhood. In today’s world, I’m starting to feel more alone in my passion for motherhood and my excitement I have for being a future mom.
I’m not having a baby any time soon, and I’m not sure that I will be ready for some time, but that doesn’t mean I don’t think about being a mom almost every day.
It’s easy to think of the things we would miss if Scott and I had a baby, but I read a talk by President Hinckley today with this poem that gave me a new understanding:
You are the trip I did not take; You are the pearls I cannot buy; You are my blue Italian lake; You are my piece of foreign sky.
Motherhood is such a beautiful thing – I can’t wait until the day where I can hold my own little baby in my arms.
Happy Mother’s Day Mom.
