I have not abandoned this ol' blog, I just don't know why it's so dang hard for me to blog or even take photos in May and June, but it seems to happen every year. School gets out and I just want to veg out. This year has been no different except for the fact that I didn't get to veg out. For the past 3 weeks we have been working on moving into our very one REAL LIFE house. No more trailer dwelling for me! Life has been full of other things too, like school concerts, girls camp, birthday celebrations and most importantly the baptism of Mr. Colby Ryan Conk.
It was a wonderful day that began with a luncheon with those that were able to come followed by the baptism at the chapel. Colby was baptized and confirmed a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints by his dad Terry Kay Conk. We were so happy to have so much love and support from our family. This boy is so loved by all who come in contact with him and since the day he was born we knew he is a very special spirit. That became even more apparent in the blessing his father gave him when he was confirmed and received the Gift of the Holy Ghost. If you have no idea what I am talking about you can read about it here. The Spirit was so strong and tears were streaming as I listened to the beautiful blessing. I am so proud of Colby's decision to be baptized and am so lucky to be the mom of this amazing kid. He will do great things in this world in spite of having me for a mother! We sure love this boy and look forward to watching the boy grow into a man!
Motherhood is a sacred thing. It is a gift and a privilege to be part of this exclusive club of women. Sometimes I don't feel worthy of the title of mother because it is the hardest thing I have or will ever have done. It is also the most important thing I will do in this life. Motherhood should be celebrated and honored. I consider myself lucky to be friends with Heather and Lesli, 2 amazing Mothers!
