I am a home-schooling mum and clergy wife. Whenever people ask me what I do, I find it difficult to answer because what they really mean is what do you do to earn money. The choice we made as a family was to have a smaller income and give time - really a very small sacrifice as children grow so quickly - until our daughter is grown.
Sometimes I feel as if I am 'just' a mother. Especially in a room full of people who all have careers. Then I have to remind myself that being a mother is a blessing and a privilege. That's the first journal page above.
But I wasn't done with the subject. The second page, with its gelli-printed papers for a background and graffiti style, followed on quickly as I remembered that there are many labels that you could use for what I do and what I am.
And that I am more than a label.
I am still growing.
I am multi-faceted.
I am more than the sum of my parts.
I am never 'just' anything...
