How many of you remember this song from the Brite Music tape, I'm a Mormon? Didn't all LDS families have a copy of this tape? We did and so did Ben's family.
This morning I was playing an MP3 player that is full of kid's songs and this song came on. Mag was crying, Gar was screaming, Uly was trying to climb up something that isn't climbable - you get the picture. Chaos. That song came on and I suddenly looked at my kids with new eyes.
I was reminded of why I chose this job of Mother. It was because I knew it was the right thing to do. I knew how much joy and blessings it would bring. I knew that a house full of love needs a family.
Well, anyway, the song was a nice little reminder of my priorities. I don't give my kids cookies and yellow balloons all day long and I'm pretty sure we're not going to try for 6 kids, but still the gist of the meaning is there.
