                     I applaud the ordinary…

     Ordinary…”with no special or distinctive features; normal”

            In our society ordinary is highly undervalued…just doing the

             ordinary normal….isn’t this the role of a momma…

               What is more ordinary than wiping snotty noses…

              changing stinky diapers…kissing hurting boo boos….

                        But these ordinary moments…”duties”…

                          done where crowds don’t applaud….

                   These are actually not ordinary at all….

                      these acts of love are EXTRAordinary….

       Loving a child…from the moment the first breath is taken…

    rocking….feeding… praying…meeting all the everyday needs …
       These extraordinary acts…transform a life…mold a soul…

                    these extraordinary gifts a momma gives …

                        is the Love of  Jesus…  His Love with skin
                       
                    What an EXTRAORDINARY privilege….

                      to do the ordinary… empowered by LOVE!

So many bloggers are younger moms…I want to applaud, encourage and say…you are of great value…you are movers and shakers…you have the power to change the world…one child at a time.

  5. I love this. It IS an EXTRAORDINARY privilege to be a Mother. If only every Mother realized the power they have to influence her child, who will then influence the world.

    Thanks for stopping by and commenting.
