Mothers have played an important role in our lives. Even without a biological mother present, women have influenced all of our lives for good. Today, we pay tribute to our mother, step-mothers, sisters, grandmothers, aunts, friends and our own experiences of being a mother.
The days go by so slow. But the years flew by so fast.
My arms ached from holding you all day. Now my arms ache to hold you as a baby again.
My child was such a picky eater. Now he never stops eating.
Will this child ever stop crying. Now I wish my child would tell me how she’s feeling.
I remember rocking you to sleep. Now I come watch you rocking out with your band.
Past: I saw the mischievous gears in your head as you realized you could get a reaction from your baby sister. Present: “I miss my baby sister” (who is serving an LDS mission on the other side of the globe).
Way back when I could do three loads of laundry (blues, pinks, whites) for a week’s worth of tiny clothes. Now it takes me all week to do a week’s worth of laundry!
Years and years and years of monthly payments for unnumbered music lessons. Now it’s one lump sum for expensive instruments, watching you perform, and wondering where that stage presence came from.
Nights and nights of teaching you to pray. Tonight Dad asks you to pray and you pray for your family. I’m so blessed to be your mom.
Happy Mothers Day!
