So true

"In these preparatory years, you young women spend much of your time in schools or jobs where you receive accolades, honors, awards, ribbons, or trophies. When you move from that stage to young motherhood, there is a dramatic drop-off in outside commendation. Yet in no other capacity is there more opportunity to serve selflessly as Christ would do by taking care of hundreds of daily physical, emotional, and spiritual needs."
-Susan W. Tanner, from here 

Does anyone else sometimes want a trophy just for making dinner?


  1. how about washing the sheets (what seems like every morning but is probably only every other day) every time the pullup gross!

  2. seriously! even spaghetti can seem like a major accomplishment sometimes! It was so good to talk to you the other day!
