Take Home Message

I loved the weekend! I listened to the General Conference of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints and I was so uplifted. Throughout the conference, there were so many messages that hit home and made me want to be better. But perhaps the "take home" message for me was to slow down and make time for the important things. I am so blessed to have the amazing family that I have. Along with incredible extended family, (parents, siblings, cousins etc), I have an amazing husband and 5 precious daughters. They are so good and so sweet. They have the best hearts and try so hard to do what is right. People often ask if I am disappointed that I don't have a son, or comment that I have my hands full or simply just say, "wow". And to all of them I say- I am absolutely NOT disappointed, I am so richly blessed. My hands are full and I stand in awe of the lives with which I have been entrusted. These girls are the light of my life. They are everything to me and I cherish every moment that I have to spend with them. Life gets crazy at times and I am afraid that I take on too much. But the message that hit home for me this weekend was to stop and enjoy this time. I need to make time for the things that matter and glory in being the mother of my 5 precious girls.
