Mother's Day...

...I was looking forward to our church Sacrament meeting today because I knew the children would be singing a song to the mothers. I had been practicing this song for a couple of weeks with the girls and they had it down. Then L got sick and couldn't make it to church. I was sad. I know it's a little thing, but I was sad. Well, we recorded the girls singing it for me this evening before bed. First they had to sing the "I love Daddy/Mommy" song, then the Mother's Day song:
"I often, go walking in meadows of clover. And I gather armfuls of blossoms of blue. I gather the blossoms the whole meadow over. Dear mother all flowers remind me of you." Thanks girls! (remember to pause my music to hear this well!)

Another great mother's day gift I recieved today was from L. Because she was sick, my sweet husband got up to comfort her in the night and ended up on the floor by her bed when she woke up this morning. He told me, she leaned out of bed first thing, looked at him and asked, "where's Mommy?" Then, my little girl who is just entering the world of personal pronouns and full sentences said, "Mommy makes me feel better." Awww.... Then continued without prompting: "Mommy makes dinner... Mommy makes cookies... Mommy makes cookies in the oven."

Motherhood is near to divinity. It is the highest, holiest service to be assumed by mankind. It places her who honors its holy calling and service next to the angels.”
