She came tonight as I sat alone...
the girl I used to be...
And she gazed at me with her earnest eye
have you forgotten the many plans
And hopes I had for you?
The great career, the splendid fame,
all the wonderful things to do?
Where is the mansion of stately height
With all its gardens rare?
The silken..robes that I dreamed f for you
And the jewels in your hair?
And as she spoke, I was very sad
For I wanted her pleased with me...
This slender girl from the shadowy past
the girl that used to be.
So gently rising, I took her hand
And guided her down the hall,
Where peacefully sleeping, my babies lay
Innocent ,sweet, and fair.
And I told her that these are my only gems,
And precious they are to me:
That silken robes is my motherhood 
of costly simplicity,.
And my mansion of stately height is love,
And the only career I know
 is serving each day in these sheltered walls
for the dear ones who come and go
And as I spoke to my shadowy, guest,
She smiled through her tears at me.
And I saw the woman that I am now
Pleased the girl I used to be.

A really sweet sister gave a lesson on motherhood in relief society when I was in Utah. I haven't been to Releif society in years because of my amazing calling in Primary. I am so glad I got to be there for this because if there is one thing I'm passionate about is motherhood and the divine calling that it is. I loved this poem that she handed out. I honestly don't know if this rings true to me because the girl I used to be would be so proud that I have achieved my dream of being a mom to these beautiful people. What an awesome responsibility it is and scary! But something this hard and scary is beautiful and divine and can only be done with a prayer in your heart. My heart is so full of gratitude for all you mothers that choosing to raise these blessed children of our Heavenly Father.
