for motherhood

Here's the thing about being a mother (and the older my kids get, the more I realize this is true): I have to be my best self or I am failing them. Please don't misunderstand me. This does not mean that I have to be perfect, but I do have to be trying to do the right thing. My children are watching, and what they see me do will form their own habits and beliefs. I believe that life is about shedding my natural tendencies and learning to be more like my Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ. Being a mother helps me to do that, and I am so very thankful for the opportunity. Motherhood stretches and strengthens me. It humbles and teaches me, and it is my highest, most sacred privilege.
