THE DOCTRINE OF MOTHERHOOD
Saturdays tend to be ridiculously busy, but did you know that in only 13 minutes you can be reminded, or learn, the truth about the doctrine of motherhood?
This message is the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth! If you’re at all like me, and have struggled at times with Hallmark’s version of a Happy Mother’s Day, or lack there of, maybe it’s because we’re focused on what the world is serving up on the subject. I’m not suggesting that those lovely cards, chocolates, and flowers are BAD, but they can sometimes fall short of all there is to be celebrated on this special day.
Finally (ahem) it has occurred to me that the Mother’s Day I choose to enjoy could be a happier, peaceful, and more purposeful experience if at least within my own heart, there was a shift in focus. What if once a year, I took the opportunity to express sincere gratitude to my Father in Heaven for the eternal opportunity of motherhood? What if I chose to celebrate and truly appreciate the sacred calling entrusted in my DNA?
Mother’s Day built on the truths of the Savior’s restored gospel may happily, and thankfully, be shared by all women. And that sounds like a REALLY good day to me! Watch and learn:) I did.
