I sat at a table today in Washington, DC, at the American Mothers convention, enjoying tea with the 2016 State and National Mothers of Achievement – all ordinary mothers with extraordinary stories. You would not believe…biographies ranging from changing the culture in Ethiopia, to making a difference with the malnourished babies in Ghana, to eradicating harmful laws concerning children in state governments. All of these women dignitaries, former First Ladies, and founders of organizations had one thing in common: they were all ordinary women who saw a need in their sphere and decided to “do their part” to make a difference. One honoree commented, “Pam, I wondered why ‘somebody’ was not doing something about this issue, then realized that ‘somebody’ was me.”
Great point. We are all “somebody” for a God-ordained reason.
