Learning and Growing

My entry today is on motherhood. What a joy and a challenge it can be. There are days when I just want to give up and climb in bed and say forget it, I have no clue what I'm doing. Some days it takes everything within me to be patient and loving. On those days, it's hard not to feel like a failure when you loose your temper or run out of patience one too many times. Motherhood is definitely a task that has made me realize how very far away I am from being perfect. Thank goodness there is forgiveness and prayer for those times when I need it. I'm glad Heavenly Father reminds me now and again what a tremendous blessing it is. I have definitely been reminded this sabbath day how richly blessed I am to have the life I do, and the sweet little miracles that stretch and mold me into the person I am to become.

I take comfort in knowing that it's alright for feel frustrated and overwhelmed at times and make mistakes, because I am here to learn. I also take comfort in this talk by Elder Holland. I watch it a lot, it always makes me feel better:)
