My Mission is Motherhood

I just read this fabulous blog post and just wanted to say I AGREE with everything she says.

And if you haven't read this talk yet by Sister Julie B. Beck, now is a great time to read it. 


A few years back I went through the whole "what is my mission?" questioning phase, wondering if I could ever be more than "just a mom."  I wonder if all mothers need to go through something like that.   I'm happy to say that the answer came that I was (and am) fulfilling my mission every single day of my life.  Ever since I was a little girl I've wanted to be a mother of many children.  In high school I was given a silly "award":  Julia F...Most likely to marry a Mormon, move to a cattle ranch in Montana and have more children than cattle.  I'm not in Montana, nor do I live on a ranch.  But I am happy to say I have more children than cattle!  :-)  I just hope that I will continue to live my mission to the fullest, that my children will see my joy in being their mother and that I can do my best despite all my many weaknesses!  :-)
