I am so lucky to be a mom!

As some of you know, our cute little Jacob is not a very happy baby... He cries A LOT and he sleeps very little because of his discomfort. I find myself getting about 4-5 hours of interupted seep each night only to get up to 4 other chidren in need of feeding, teaching, and loving (all while almost constantly holding Jacob). This last week I have found it so hard to be happy about motherhood... But after watching a clip from LDS clips I realized how lucky I am to be a mom and to have 5 beautiful children, a healthy body, an amazing husband, a great family, and the gospel of Jesus Christ in my life. It is such an honor that God would allow me to raise so many of his precious chidren and to let me love so deaply in this life. I decided that i need to find a way to slow down and enjoy what my Heavenly Father has blessed me with.

Your kids look so beautiful in that picture. I totally agree, we do need to slow down and realize are blessings. What clip did you watch? I's like to watch it!

Was it the Nie Mormon Message? My friend Chris made that video- I absolutely love that girl. Have you ever read her blog? It saved my life- I say that because she totally inspired me to be the best mom I can- even before her accident. Here is her link:
