Being a Mom

Becoming a mom changed the way I look at, well, everything. 

Suddenly the world isn't mine to behold but theirs. 

I love to get down to eye level and watch my kids. How do they see things?

My guess is more simple. More pure.

One of my favorite scriptures in the Book of Mormon is about becoming as a little child. Although my kids are young, they teach me everyday. 

They've taught me to slow down and enjoy the moment.

They've taught me how to be more patient. To find the good in everything. 

One of my strongest hopes is that when they think of me, they'll remember me as happy. And I hope they know it was them who filled my life with joy and purpose.

I'm so grateful to be a mother.
