I think I am growing into my role as a mother. To be honest, it has been very emotionally challenging for me in a lot of ways to be a full time mom. I am noticing, though, that instead of feeling empty at the end of a day as a mom, I am feeling fulfilled and full of happiness more and more often. I think I am beginning to understand that this is my calling...this is what my Father in Heaven wants for me...there is no better way to use my abilities than this...these children are incredibly amazing and I am responsible for raising them. Of course I logically knew these things before. I'm not sure what exactly is different. All I know is that I am happy. I am full. I don't want anything different. I am changed in a good way. I love being a mother. Of course things aren't perfect and I don't feel this way all of the time, but I feel it more often and I am thankful for that.
Here's to hoping I don't change my mind after baby #4 arrives :) Kidding, of course.
