"There is eternal influence and power in motherhood."
~Julie B. Beck
In the busy-ness and chaos of life, I often forget that the work I am doing in my home is divine.
Not a difficult thing to forget-- amiright???
As I think about the work I am doing, my mind first goes to the images of smeared toothpaste on bathroom mirrors, changing dirty diapers, piles of laundry, and dishes that need to be done.
But then I also remember the blanket forts, the scribbled notes that say "I love you," the snuggles in the morning, the way my four year old son will let only me kiss him, the eyes of raptured attention when my children beg for me to "read one more chapter!"
My work may seem small, ordinary, and unimportant. But I am building nations, cultures, societies.
Oh, yes. I have an influence.
I have the power to change the world.
I am a mother.
