We weren’t born to be mothers who are thin, rich, smart, who drive a lot, buy our kids great clothes, or get them into good colleges.
Each of us is created to fill a calling. First and foremost, we were born to be really good moms. We weren’t born to be mothers who are thin, rich, smart, who drive a lot, buy our kids great clothes, or get them into good colleges. First, we were born to leave a mark in our world. And usually, that mark is made on our kids and then on others lives. Sometimes it leaves its mark because of something we have done for other persons and other times it happens because we were with them. We are beings- mother beings. We are human beings but we focus so constantly on the doing of life that we forget how to be, our deeper purpose in life flows from a sense that our presence is important to another person. We have something to share with another and sometimes this takes work, and sometimes it means simply being who we are in the company of another.
