Mother's Day Wisdom

Mother's Day always causes me to reflect on what a great mom, mother-in-law, and set of grandmothers I was blessed with.

As most women do, I am also prone to thinking about what I need to do better as a woman and mother. I read a great article recommended by my dear cousin Linn on Facebook (Lighten up on yourself to have a better life) that got me thinking, then a friend sent an email with lots of quotes by this dear lady whom I admire. One of the quotes summed it all up.

"We women have a lot to learn about simplifying our lives. We have to decide what is important and then move along at a pace that is comfortable for us. We have to develop the maturity to stop trying to prove something. We have to learn to be content with what we are."
--Marjorie Pay Hinckley

Hope your Mother's Day was wonderful!
