Let me expound. The thought that I might have a pack of males overrunning my home, and that I might never bring a daughter into the world has been troubling me.
But today I took pictures of some of the most beautiful young ladies in existence. And I realized I will always have the opportunity to care for them, and other women. Not as a mother, but as a mentor, a teacher, a friend.
I am a daughter and a sister and I will always be connected to women that way. I have glorious friends that exemplify womanhood in its most graceful form. I will hopefully be able to serve in church positions such as the young women's program, relief society, and primary, where I will influence and be influenced by so many ladies, young and old.
At the moment I realized this... that I have and will always have a connection to other females... I had to hold back tears of relief, and gratitude.
Gratitude for my lovely friends who let me adore their baby girls, and make them flower clips for their hair. Gratitude for a mother and mother-in law, for sisters and cousins, and aunts. Gratitude for a loving Heavenly Father who meets our needs in so many ways that we do not always recognize.
