“I Have the Privilege of Being a Mother”
Oh, how Carrie wanted to get out of there. Among the many tables of parents, Carrie was seated at a table of ten dads and moms. They were attending an important meeting relating to an issue in their school district. Awaiting the beginning of the meeting, casual conversation resulted in the folks sharing what they did for an occupation. Each of the participants at Carrie’s table were career people. As they went around the table telling their professions, two were company executives, three accountants, one was a truck driver, another a police officer, a psychologist, and a medical doctor. Carrie was the last to speak and said, “I have the privilege of being a company executive, accountant, professional driver, at times a police officer, often a child psychologist and even a medical first responder. You see, I happen to have the privilege of being a Mother!”
“He maketh the barren woman to keep house, and to be a joyful mother of children. Praise ye the LORD” (Psalm 113:9).
