THE PRICE OF GREATNESS

PriceGreatnessWhen a new baby is born and we take this precious life into our arms, we are not only overcome with awe and delight, but the enormity of the task that lies ahead. We are responsible to keep this little life alive. We must nurse, nourish, love, protect, and train this child until they one day leave our home. Even then, we never stop praying for them. Even then, their trials and challenges are still our concerns.

I remember when Serene's oldest son was born. A few days after birth he came down with RSV and we had to rush him to the hospital. As baby Arden was turning blue, Sam, the new father, perplexingly asked, "How do we keep them alive?"

However, it is not only caring for a new life. Mothers bear the weight of managing a home and family. It's not like other careers where you clock in and out at a certain time. We feel this weight upon us continually.

Sir Winston Churchill once said, "The price of greatness is responsibility." Yes, you have great responsibility dear, mother, but because your career is great, not because it is insignificant.

Don't try to minimize the greatness of your career and do it on the sideline. Embrace it fully. Embrace the responsibility. Motherhood is the greatest and most influential career given to women.

Blessings to you today,

Nancy Campbell
