I've been pondering on this for a while.
We women have a lot to learn about simplifying our lives. We have to decide what is important and then move along at a pace that is comfortable for us. We have to develop the maturity to stop trying to prove something. We have to learn to be content with what we are.
As you create a home, don’t get distracted with a lot of things that have no meaning for you or your family. Don’t dwell on your failures, but think about your successes. Have joy in your home. Have joy in your children. Have joy in your husband. Be grateful for the journey." ~Marjorie P. Hinckley
I've been thinking about my journey as a wife and mother and the joyful moments I've shared with my family. It hasn't all been pretty but it has been perfect for us. So what if I'm not the "dream women" that I thought I would be. My family has seen me cry, worry, been impatient, angry and disappointed but more often they have seen me happy and content with who I am and what I can become. My journey has been filled with joy. In the words of one of my children...."I love my life!"
