These are the moments I want to remember…
… reading a book with my little superhero who wants to wear his goggles all day.
In General Conference (April 2008) Elder Ballard reminded me:
“First, recognize that 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.”
In my daily life there is much of stress, chaos, and exhaustion. But if I’m looking, every day I can find a moment of real, deep joy. Those little moments fill me with satisfaction and make all my efforts seem like a very small sacrifice.
I’ve decided to keep this record because these years are already flying by with alarming speed! And when all is said and done, and my house has grown quiet (and clean!) it is these precious moments that I want to remember.
Here are a few more of the recent greats:
Mommy helping Jonah “beat dis level” on Lego Star Wars
Cousins enjoying the lovely fall weather (in the shade, of course!)
