You know, in today’s world so many women have been made to feel that being a mother is “just” something a woman is. Nothing special…
Listen to this conversation.
Woman: Wow, I have not seen you in so many years! Where have you been hiding?
Mother of 2 littles: I was just thinking the same thing when I saw you. I haven’t been hiding any where; just here busy as usual.
Woman: So what do you do now?
Mother of 2 littles: oh me, I’m just a mom.
I don’t know about you, but I have heard women reply like the Mother of 2 littles, and I have actually replied like that in the past when I was asked what my occupation was.
And so I asked myself “Why?”
Well, I’ll tell you what came to mind-it is because many women are made to feel like motherhood is not a blessing but rather that it is something inferior.
Women paint this bad picture to other women. Men paint this picture, society paints this picture…and did I say the church?….
And what’s the result?
Women not recognizing that motherhood is a blessing and is important.
And so today as we pray, let us pray that mothers see their important role whether they are stay at home mothers, work outside the home mothers, work inside the home mothers…motherhood is important.
