I am so grateful to my Heavenly Father for the privilege he has given me to be a mother. I am so exited! I look at mothers and see the love they have for their children, and I can't wait to know that love. To hold them in my arms, to comfort, to nurture, to protect, to laugh with, to wipe tears, to teach and be an example. I look forward to teaching them about my Heavenly Father and Savior, whom I love with all my heart.

I can't wait to look into my daughters eyes and to hold her for the first time. It's crazy to think that not too long ago, she was with Heavenly Father, in his kingdom and in his glory. I am so grateful she chose to come down and to be apart of mine and Denton's life. And I am eternally grateful that we will be a family for time and all eternity!!

I am grateful for the example and love my own mother had for me and all her children. I know at times she doesn't feel she did a good job, but she is an amazing woman and mother. I love her with all of my heart, and I pray that I can be as good of a mother as she!

Only two weeks left! The time has gone by so fast! (Yet so slow!) I look forward to this opportunity and privilege, and pray with all my heart I will be the best mother I can!
