I already know I’m repeating myself a lot this week, but it’s a message worth repeating. A few days ago, I made this little graphic to try to get moms to look at Mother’s Day a little differently.
Then today, I have a piece up over at LDS Living that highlights some of the reasons why moms should give themselves permission to be celebrated. It’s called “Hey, Moms: George Washington Wasn’t Perfect Either.” Go check it out and then pat yourself on the back for a minute.
LDS Living is also offering a free e-book for moms that you can download right here.
So do me (and yourself) a favor, and tell me in the comments one thing you do well as a mom, or one good thing you think your children will remember about you. (If it’s really that hard, just ask them. You might be surprised.) I’ll celebrate that with you this Mother’s Day.

One thing I do well as a mother is that I try to make sure that my children know that they are loved and valued by me, no matter what!
I feel like i live by the spirit daily. I try to implement what i learn as i commune with my Savior through scripture study and prayer and then follow those promptings.
I’m a pretty good cook. Since my kids split their time between my home & their dad’s, they often comment on how they get such “good food” at my house. I guess the old adage about ‘the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach’ applies to grade schoolers too!
I’m very good at apologizing and asking for their forgiveness.
I’m good at laughing with my kids.
If I’ve done nothing else, I would hope that they would say, “Mom taught me how to pray, work hard and laugh’….now…to ask them and see their responses !! ( I think I’ll wait until AFTER Mother’s day to ask though !)
