if all the rain drops were lemon drops

Greetings on a beautiful, rainy day.  I love the rain.  Though it would be more enjoyable if I was snuggled in bed with Jeffree and some hot cocoa.

I wish I had thought of this quote at 3 in the morning when my sweet little e decided it was time for a snack.  I love the beautiful picture these words paint of motherhood.

Motherhood is the greatest potential influence either for good or ill in human life. The mother's image is the first that stamps itself on the unwritten page of the young child's mind. It is her caress that first awakens a sense of security, her kiss, the first realization of affection; her sympathy and tenderness, the first assurance that there is love in the world.  -President David O. McKay

I think sometimes we women forget the positive influence we can have in this world.  There is no greater joy!
