On motherhood...

I appreciate how this article gives meaning to the sometimes tedious work of a mother.

"So, mothers, the next time someone asks, "What did you do today?" Please take the time to answer accurately. You did not "clean the bathroom." This response would be like Annie Leibovitz saying, "Oh, I stood around and pushed some buttons." No. Today you did the holy work of raising human beings. With each word spoken or unspoken, with each offering of forgiveness, you show your children what it means to be brave and kind. The mundane becomes holy, the ordinary extraordinary."
