Happy Mother's Day part two

The Relief Society President in my ward is a wonderful lady. She arranged for all the women in the ward to attend Relief Society together, it was wonderful! I typically spend every Sunday teaching the children in the ward primary music, which is wonderful but I do miss being with the women, so it was fun to be able to meet with the other women in my ward. I feel so blessed to be one of many thousands of women who are proud to be mother's. I am privileged to be part of an army of women who strive to raise good, righteous children, and who understand their divine role as mother's. I am a member of the largest women's organization in the world, and together we share the same values, ideals, and goals. That is so cool!!!! I know I am weird, but I have always wanted to be part of a large group of people who are unified in a cause, and then march together up over a hill singing a song. (Can you see the musical? :)) Well today I feel like I am part of that large group and we are unified in the cause for good in the world, and we stand together lifting each other up and supporting each other. We even sang a song today about how we are sisters in Zion and we all work together, now we just need to march over a hill. :) I know it is cheesy, but it makes me happy! I am a mom, and I am proud of it!

The best mother's day gift came today when we came home from church and Brandon snuggled with me while he went to sleep. It is a great gift, because it is so unusual for Brandon to snuggle. (he is such a busy body) He rested his little head in my arms and wrapped is little arms around me and fell asleep, and I got to listen to him breath. It was wonderful!

You write the best posts! They are always so tender and loving. I love the picture of Chandler and Brandon's bums, the pictures and tribue to your mom and grandma, and all of the updates and stories!
