"Your success as a family....our success as a nation...depends not on what happens inside the White House, but on what happens inside your house."Barbara Bush
Here's to Good women:
May we know them,
May we be them and
May we raise them.
I love being married, I love Phil; he helps me realize who I am and how much I can do better. He is very tactful and really hit the nail on the head for me this week. I have been struggling a long while with being a mother. Boston is my greatest joy and greatest trial right now. I am learning a new form of patience with her. Most days I love her to pieces and other days I just wish I was single and a missionary again. I blurted out one evening that Motherhood is supposed to be filled with Joy and Love. Phil then reassured me that we have to find the Joy and love, that's what makes it so worth it. It was like throwing a brick through a glass wall. I LOVE the lessons we learn when we have others to help us point out our weaknesses. I've been reading I Am A Mother, by Jane Clayson Johnson. It was been a great source of strength along with the scriptures. I'm grateful we are able to have children and for the most part she has been healthy. I pray ever minute of everyday for strength and courage to enjoy the moments I have now and not want Boston to grow up to soon. I love both Phil and Boston and am thankful for the temple that makes us an eternal unit. I'm humbled by the Lord's love and patience with me through this time in my life right now. I know He loves me and this will all be worth it someday.
