I have three beautiful little girls. Right now I am able to see them for who they are perfectly. It seems that children show us their true individual natures and worth at a very young age. For example, if you know Paige then it is easy to see that she is a very kind, loving, intuitive, stalwart, and gentle person. Taylor is outgoing, tender, generous, determined, and protective. Sarah we can already see that she has a peaceful and calm nature. Why is this important? I think it is important to me as a mother because in today's world, some of these attributes are not celebrated enough. We see girls portrayed in a very different manner then they were 20+ years ago. I am not talking about the idea that women are one dimensional and shouldn't have degrees and goals. I am talking more of the attributes the world celebrates. I believe that women can be successful without being course. I have a friend, Linsy, who I feel demonstrates this to a tee. From what I can tell she has never given up her poise or kindness to move ahead in life and yet from all aspects she is very successful.
So for me as a mother of three little princesses, "Daughters of a Heavenly King", I have the opportunity to raise them true to their divine natures and teach them how to be successful in life using their individual worth. I welcome this challenge and look forward to the day when I see each one of them enter the sealing room to see them sealed for time an all eternity. Come what may, their core will always be the same even though life may offer hardening circumstances. They will always be those same tender spirits Heavenly Father has sent here. My job lies in helping them to be happy with themselves and there in lies their personal confidence.
I love my girls so very much and want only eternal happiness for them. They have brought a joy into my life that I couldn't understand as a child. My mom always would say, "I love you so much, more than you can imagine until you have a little Nicole of your own." I don't have a little Nicole but I have a Paige, Taylor, and Sarah Elizabeth and they bring such a happiness that I could not imagine until I had them.
I am grateful for this opportunity to be their earthly mother.
