One Reason Why I Want to be a Mother

My friend just posted this on her blog. I was raised to believe and view this of motherhood. It is why it's the second greatest desire I have in my life. I try so hard not to ask "When will it be my turn?" and worry that this great blessing will never be part of my life. But I know all is according to the Lord's will.

I had to share the quote:

"Oh that God would give every mother a vision of the glory and splendor of the work that is given to her when a babe is placed in her bosom to be nursed and trained! Could she have but one glimpse into the future of that life as it reaches on into eternity; could she look into its soul to see its possibilities, could she be made to understand her own personal responsibility for the training of this child, for the developments of its life, and for its destiny, - she would see that in all God's world there is no other work so noble and so worthy of her best powers, and she would commit to no other hands the sacred and holy trust given to her."

-J.R. Miller, Home-Making (orig. pub. 1882)
