I love being a mother. I used to love being an aunt because I could always give the crying baby back to it's mom. I thought that being a mom in that instant would not be fun since, when around family, everyone holds the baby until the baby is screaming. But I find now that I LOVE it when someone else is holding my baby and the baby gets fussy, because I am the mother and JD feels comfort from me and calms down when I have him. It is amazing the connection that mothers have with their babies. Now I know why I am so close with my mom. Jeremy's favorite scripture that he has on his missionary plaque is Alma 56:47-48
"47 Now they never had fought, yet they did not fear death; and they did think more upon the liberty of their fathers than they did upon their lives; yea, they had been taught by their mothers, that if they did not doubt, God would deliver them.
48 And they rehearsed unto me the words of their mothers, saying: We do not doubt our mothers knew it."
I just hope that I can teach JD all that he needs to know amd all that my parents taught me.
