Many women today would frown on that concept I am guessing. I know for me that it would not be enough to satisfy me. But let’s think about it for a moment—mull it over. Helen discovered the love of her life—her soul mate—in her childhood. Wow! How many people do that? Imagine knowing from almost birth that the person you love most in the world has already been found. How many of us spend our entire lives searching for that person? I’m guessing that search alone takes up at least 75-85% of your lifetime energy. After all, what is life without love? Then there is her desire to be a mother of several children and make a home for them. If you’re a mother then you know the answer to this one already. To be a mother, you must become a writer, a teacher, a chef, along with nurse, maid, and a motivational speaker at the very least. And again, having children just gives you more opportunity to love another human being.
Changing the world? How many of us feel that we’re doing that in our chosen careers? And how many of us sell motherhood short as a less-than-vital contribution to society? But I ask you, where would any of us be without the encouragement, caring, and wisdom of our mothers? Tell me that is not a career that doesn’t influence the world!
