Midweek Pick Me Up

It's a simple little quote from a great man, M. Russell Ballard:
There is no one perfect way to be a good mother. Each situation is unique. Each mother has different challenges, different skills and abilities, and certainly different children.
Do you realize that you can do things for your children that no other mother could do for them? Regardless of their age, your children need what you alone have to offer them. (At 30 I'm seeing how much I need my mom, and not someone else's, to help me figure out life!) Don't waste time doubting your abilities or comparing your qualifications against someone else's; just jump right in and create those moments every day when you can laugh and learn and love together. You'll never regret it.
