Two weeks ago I was sitting on the couch watching general conference when I found myself again gently reprimanding a son. One of those same two.( only now he's almost 14) After my quiet correction I found myself thinking....."I hope I sound like my Mom" That's when I snickered at myself and thought "I must finally be growing up."
I've realized that I am who I am because of my mom's words and teachings. Now, my deepest desires help me to know that her teachings have blessed my life immeasurably and I pray that I can help my children get to a point in their own lives where they stand looking in the mirror and say to themselves " Uhg, I'm starting to sound like my Mom."
It's really not such a bad thing, after all. =)
