My all-time favorite quote about motherhood comes from the talk Daughters of God by Elder M. Russel Ballard:
I’ve always found so much truth in that. Motherhood is hands down the hardest thing I’ve ever done, but it’s also the most rewarding. There are so many frustrating times… Tantrums, arguments, and hurt feelings…
But then those moments of joy happen. When my sons wrap their arms around me and tell me they love me, or when they mention me in their prayers. When they succeed at something they worked hard for, or they help out without being asked. Each one of those “shining moments” makes it all worthwhile.
Free Printable Mother’s Day Coloring Pages
To celebrate all you hard working moms out there, I made some “Mommy and Me” coloring pages! One page is simple, and the other is more detailed. I love coloring with my boys, but I’ve found that they usually don’t want to color quite as much as I do. That’s when having more than one option comes in handy. Have your little one work on the simple page while you make your own masterpiece!
My own kids switched things up – Kender, my 9 year old, colored the detailed page for me while Rhett, my 7 year old, colored the simple page. I love how they turned out!
I also included one that’s formatted to be printed as a card. You can print it on card stock, color it, cut it out, write a love note inside, and give it to your favorite Mom!
Moms, I hope you never forget how much you mean to your families. Your work of loving, nurturing, and teaching your children is so important. They will never forget the time you took to sit down and listen to them, or spend one on one time coloring with them.😉
Happy Mother’s Day!
