The challenge was to submit a photo that represents some aspect of this quote by Elder M. Russell Ballard :
“Recognize that the joy of motherhood comes in moments. There will be hard times and frustrating times. But amid the challenges, there are shining moments of joy and satisfaction.”
Behold the entries:
Aren’t they great? Originally I said I would pick my 3 favorites for a vote, but after I looked at them all, I felt a little spineless. Who says my three favorites would be your three favorites? So VOTE FOR YOUR THREE FAVORITE PHOTOS that best express Elder Ballard’s quote to you. Each computer gets one vote with three choices. This is just the honor system, folks. I’ll leave voting open for the week and announce the winner next Monday. Whoever gets the most votes — is the most people’s favorite– will win. Besides the coveted highlight spot on my sidebar, I’ll think of something else lovely as a little prize too. Thanks to everyone who participated.
THE POLL IS OPEN UP THERE ON MY SIDEBAR. GO VOTE!!! And thanks for being such awesome moms.

So many to choose from! Can’t wait to become a mom, so I can submit a picture of me giving them Diet Coke at age 2, and locking them outside the house at 14.
Thank you, thank you for allowing us to vote for more than one!
So many great photos! Thanks everyone for entering them! Each photo is so special and unique…love it!
Darn, I forgot I was going to enter a photo. Oh well.

There. I was the first person to do it.
And as I did, you commented on my last post. I love these sympatico moments in the blogging world. They always make me smile – as did all the photos shared here.
That was really hard to pick three.
Thanks for sharing, this is a great idea!
I know, see? That’s why I’m making you guys do it. 🙂
These all are really good pictures.
That was a tough decision but I voted!
We each express it a little different. Thanks for sharing all the photos.
Great photos. So hard to pick.
It is all about those moments.
I had a couple of them today.
Ever seen into the woods?
