on being a mom

there are lots of articles out there at the moment about motherhood, how to parent, what it means, making the most of every moment, giving yourself a break etc..... Today I came across this article. I loved it. Having kids is hard and wonderful. I really appreciate the perspective this author takes. Below is my favourite little bit of the article for those that dont click the link. (although you should. its a short article and its great!) "Live the gospel in the things that no one sees. Sacrifice for your children in places that only they will know about. Put their value ahead of yours. Grow them up in the clean air of gospel living. Your testimony to the gospel in the little details of your life is more valuable to them than you can imagine. If you tell them the gospel, but live to yourself, they will never believe it. Give your life for theirs every day, joyfully. Lay down pettiness. Lay down fussiness. Lay down resentment about the dishes, about the laundry, about how no one knows how hard you work."
