Happy Mother's Day
Most people say that you can't put a dollar amount on everything moms do, but if you did, salary.com says they would earn about $112,962 a year. That ranks right up there with top ad executives, marketing directors, and judges. Each year, Salary.com calculates the wages by combining the earning power of the jobs that resemble a mom's role--like a laundry machine operator, housekeeper, teacher, babysitter, cook, janitor, driver, chief executive, and psychologist. In the end, though, no website can put a price tag on the sacrifices our moms make to raise children of strength and character. Back in Old Testament days, people didn't need a survey to understand a woman's value. Proverbs says, "A wife of noble character who can find? She is worth far more than rubies." "She is clothed with strength and dignity; she can laugh at the days to come. She speaks with wisdom, and faithful instruction is on her tongue... Her children arise and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praises her: 'Many women do noble things, but you surpass them all.'" (Proverbs 31:10, 25-26, 28-29) I am blessed to have both a mother and a wife that fit that description! To all the moms out there who make such an indelible impact on our families and our culture, thank you--and Happy Mother's Day!
