Musings of a Marfan Mom

A Mother's Role


A friend of mine shared this lovely quote today and since I liked it so much I thought I’d share it with all of you :-)

“I surely know that there is no role in life more essential and more eternal than that of motherhood.“There is no one perfect way to be a good mother. Each situation is unique. Each mother has different challenges, different skills and abilities, and certainly different children. The choice is different and unique for each mother and each family. Many are able to be ‘full-time moms,’ at least during the most formative years of their children’s lives, and many others would like to be. Some may have to work part- or full-time; some may work at home; some may divide their lives into periods of home and family and work. What matters is that a mother loves her children deeply and, in keeping with the devotion she has for God and her husband, prioritizes them above all else.”

~ M. Russell Ballard, “Daughters of God,” Ensign, May 2008, 108

  1. :) Thanks Maya – needed to hear that today. I think I need to hear that every day! Being a mom is discouraging sometimes because sometimes I feel that I’m just not good enough for it ya know? But its quotes like that that help me keep perspective.


  2. That’s a great one. Nice to think about, especially if you’ve had a long day with the kid(s). Anyways, I can’t believe Elyse has her baby and you’ll have yours in 6 days!!
