“I am not my body”

This video was shown a few weeks ago at church. I was so touched by this story and so inspired. I’m constantly being reminded how blessed I am to be called “mommy”. How many times will He have to tell me before I will stop drudging over dirty dishes and start celebrating over each hug we share?  It’s a difficult one. Finding the joy in laundry but if I never got to fold another load that seemed never ending thanks to  how many sized 2T shirts can fit in a washer… If I never had the chance to pick up their toothbrushes and put them in the droor… If never again was I hunting for that sound coming from under a cushion where a toy’s battery is slowly draining…

(I just realized it was the wrong video this whole time… Be inspired {again} if you already watched the first one. )

“Mother’s cherish that role that is so uniquely yours and for which heaven itself sends angels to watch over you and your little ones.”  - Elder Jeffrey R. Holland

    Thank you for this video! As I sit at my desk just pondering what to do next with all the trials I feel at this time I decided to go check what my sweet sister in law had been working that of course brought me to this. As I watched the video emotions over come me. I receive some great comfort and by the end when I just sit and think I remind myself this is what I have be given to go though and though it is tough I can do it I can get through it!

  7. I love you Kell! You are amazing to me, I have watched inner strength in you that I can’t even comprehend being able to muster. Some receive the hardship of their trials as children and others endure in these years we face now and others still endure later in life. I think facing trials at this stage of life would be the most difficult BUT I have no doubt what-so-ever that the strength is in you. I love you sister and am so grateful to have you as one of my dearest friends.

  8. I don’t even know how to express how much I needed to see this right now. I’m bawling because my heart and my spirit were so touched. You are such an inspiration and I hope to have even a little of your strength and determination. All I can do is thank you.
