Saying “I’m just a mother” or “just a father” – misses the point of your significance.
You are not just anything.
Not just a mom, or dad, or brother, or sister, or child, or friend.
These are some of the most important relationships we will ever have. They are also the foundation for all our future relationships.
These things matter. They are not small things.
Because everything matters, and it matters forever.

How do we measure the importance of a mother? For me, it’s millions of Hank the Cowdog books and the innocent laughter of the families who read them. When I hear a woman say, “I’m just a mother,” I have to smile. My “just a mother” was the most important teacher I ever had. She’s the one who instilled in me a sense of vocation.
