Here’s What Mom Doesn’t Realize

This article was adopted from a popular post I authored exactly one year ago today, entitled One Word For Mom.  You can read the original here.  My one word has not changed – in fact, I am even more passionate about it.

Once again, with Mother’s Day weekend upon us, I have given time and thought to my one word to describe Mom.  Not only my Mom and my wife (Mom to our children), but all Moms.

Sacrifice might be what Mom does, but it’s not the outcome.

Thus, once again, my one word for Mom is potential.

If a leader is a ‘dealer in hope’, than a mother is a ‘dealer in potential’.

While she is striving, day in and day out, to balance multi-directional demands with the ultimate mission to help her children realize their potential, what she doesn’t realize or get enough credit for is how close she’s getting to her own.

To my incredible Mother, amazing Wife (Mom to our children) and all of you who are called to be ‘Mom’, not only am I proud of the person you are, but more importantly, the person you have become.

Happy Mother’s Day!
