Day 15: A Person You Admire

So for my day 15, instead of doing a person, I am going to broaden it a bit.  Chances are 90% of people reading this fall into this category.

I admire mothers.  My mother, my mother in law, my older sisters, my aunts, my friends, ladies in my ward, the mother pushing her child at Target, mothers everywhere.  Those I admire most are mothers.

I can't speak from experience just yet, but being a mother can't be the easiest thing.  Children get into trouble, get hurt, throw tantrums in the middle of the store, make messes, and a whole lot of other things.  Yet...a mother never stops loving her child.  I'm sure it's an everyday challenge to raise children, but mothers everywhere are doing it every day.  It's not always easy, but I'm sure it's very rewarding.
I'm not a mother yet, but you can be sure I am anxiously looking forward to that day.  There are so many things I can't wait to experience as a mother.  That being said, when that time comes, I hope I'll be able to savour every day.  So for now, I'm looking forward to the day I see two lines instead of one.
Mothers.  I admire every mother out there that goes through everyday struggles that come with raising children.  I admire the lady at Target that has the screaming kid.  I admire the lady at church attempting to keep her children still during sacrament.  I admire the choice these ladies have made to be a mother.

Emily you will be a great Mom....
The best thing about being a Mom is someone other than a relative or close friend telling you that your child, teenager or adult is very kind person with a big heart. It will bring tears of joy to your eyes.
