I have been thinking about the role that women play in the life of others. It is pretty significant. Women do have such a divine purpose in life. I am thankful for a Mother who taught me the importance of knowing that I am a Child of God, and that I do have purpose. It helps me stay in check when I do feel the pressures of life. I remember that I am of worth, and my hectic life is part of that great eternal gift of being a woman, wife, and mother. Mother's Day is such a good day for reflection, and reminder that what we do as women is important. I don't think that you have to be a Mother to celebrate this day!! All women every where "Mother" in some way. It may be through serving others, teaching someone else's child, or smiling at someone at the grocery store. All of these small acts are part of the instincts that we as women are programmed with. I am thankful that Heavenly Father gave us these divine instincts that help us fulfill our role as women.
I am thankful for all the women in my life whose example blesses me and my family on a daily basis. My Mother is such a good example to me, and helped my desire to be a stay at home mom. She was always baking, cooking, and making fun projects with us as children. As I get older, I realize how hard she worked to be frugal, and find ways to save money when it was tight. Her example has helped me when money gets tight while in Medical school. Mothers are so important. Her example, has then affected my children in a round about way. Thanks MOM!!
I am thankful for a great Mother-in-Law who has accepted me as one of her own. I appreciate her, and her love for me. She is a great example of giving. She will give and give and give, and is always the last to receive. What a great Woman.
OUR CHILDREN ARE BLESSED WITH GREAT WOMEN IN THEIR LIFE!! I was also blessed with wonderful Grandmothers, and even wonderful Great Grandmothers. All of these women have helped the cycle to continue, with a world full of Wonderful Women.
Thanks to all you wonderful women in my life. Sisters, Friends, Teachers, Grandmothers and Mothers. You have made me who I am today.
