I've spent a wonderful weekend with my family; they're my favorite people in the world!
I attended my home ward, with said family, and got to see some familiar beloved faces.
My favorites being the faces of the hundreds of little children that populate this neighborhood of mine.
Especially the babies and toddlers. I love them dearly. After a delightful game of peek-a-boo with my favorite of the ward, Ella*, my motherly instincts started singing, shouting inside me.
Oh, how I long to be a mother, to have an adorable babe of my own to play peek-a-boo with, to make silly faces at, to talk in ridiculously cheery voices to, to rock to sleep in my loving arms.
I really, really can't wait for that time.
But don't worry, (mom), I plan on getting married first.
