Mother's Day

I am taking this time to wish each of you a Happy Mother's Day. Mother's Day is a day I feel that we celebrate womanhood. Many women I have in my life have not shared in the experience of bearing a child, but are mothers to me and many others. Many of these women have been examples that have helped me be the mother I am today. I am truly grateful to them.

In the Bible we read, “He maketh the … woman … to be a joyful mother of children” (Ps. 113:9).
I am so grateful that I have been blessed with two little ones that make being a "joyful mother" an easy task. I pray they remember their childhood as a joyful one, with a happy and loving mother. I thank my two little ones for teaching me daily on the true joys of life.

"The mother’s image is the first that stamps itself on the … young child’s mind. It is her caress that first awakens a sense of security; her kiss, the first realization of affection; her sympathy and tenderness, the first assurance that there is love in the world” (David O. McKay).
I love this quote. I think back to the day that both of my children were born, and the look that they gave me when they were first put in my, just as in that day, my one desire for them is the assurance that there is love in the world, but even more so in their home and family.

I will end on this note. Each day I take a look around and see that there are always several things that were not completed or questioning if I told my kids that I loved them enough, and several other "what abouts" and what ifs"...then I stumbled across this quote:

The greatest thing she'd learned over the years is that there's no way to be a perfect mother, but a million ways to be a good one.

Happy mother's Day to you all and may you all remember the honor it is to be a woman and share in motherhood.


  1. Oh Dana...what a sweet post! I was thinking about the "first impressions thing"...I remember when Tiff was born and she was crying loud...they set her on my chest and I said: "Oh don't cry sweetheart, Mommie loves you." And she stopped crying and looked right up to me. It's all so wonderful...Have a wonderful Mothers Day! (and thanks for your kind words about my post and being featured on Gooseberry Patch today!)

  2. Lovely post. Wishing you everything sweet and precious this Mother's Day. xoxo
