This is an ode to my five girls.
In my patriachal blessing it says that my children will bless my name and be a comfort to me.
I have been thinking about my girls alot lately, as I usually do. I think about the struggles and joys from when they were young children. They endured and conquered their struggles and had many joys as well. (2 Nephi 2:25) Now that they are adults, except Kellie who is well on her way to becoming an adult, I pray for them more, much more then I ever have. I know my Heavenly Father hears my prayers. I am reminded that their struggles will strenghten them and prepare them for what is to come. I marvel at their strength and endurance. I am proud of the kind of wives and friends they are. I am pleased beyond words that they know their value and aren't afraid to speak their minds when they feel the need. I am amazed at how smart they are and that they will all get a college degree. I am grateful that they all have testimonies of the savior and that they attend church and all have temple recommends. I greatly appreciate how they call me, ask me questions about life, talk with me about their day and bouye (sp) me up when I feel broken. There are no words to describe how lucky I am that I get to be their mother. I am shocked that because I am their mother that they turned out so well.
My children are a great comfort to me.
I am blessed beyond words.
Thank you to my 5 great ones!
