Mother’s Day is coming up this month, and this quote has been on my mind a lot lately:
…the joy of motherhood comes in moments. There will be hard times and frustrating times. But amid the challenges, there are shining moments of joy and satisfaction.M. Russell Ballard
This is one of my favorite quotes about motherhood. I just feel like it’s so spot on. Motherhood isn’t awesome 100% of the time. It involves a lot of spit up, smelly diapers, endless laundry, tripping over toys, screaming, crying, tantrums, sleepless nights, and making food that no one eats. But it also involves a lot of hugging, sharing, learning, loving, playing, kissing, caring, and snuggling. We live for those “shining moments of joy and satisfaction.”
That’s a reminder that I need sitting in my living room, so I made this little printable and thought I’d share with you!
Motherhood is hard, but it’s also incredibly rewarding. Those little moments of joy, though sometimes few and far between, make it all worthwhile. That quote above is from a talk by M. Russell Ballard called “Daughters of God.” It’s definitely worth a read!
Here are a few of my shining moments:
Happy (Almost) Mother’s Day! ❤
