What Do You Want to Be?

I had a conversation with a preschooler recently that really got me to thinking. She asked my daughter what she wants to be when she grows up. LadyBug said a cowgirl. Don't ask me why she is in that phase right now...we do not own a horse...I think she enjoys wearing the boots. So LadyBug asked me what I wanted to be. I said I think I want the best job in the world, to be a mommy! She lit up and smiled. The other child thought for a minute and said to me, "You really don't know what you want to be, do you?"

Now pause and think on that for a moment. Do you realize what we are teaching our children? Being a wife and mother is nothing. You have to BE something to be SOMEBODY. No career equals NOBODY. We wonder what has happened to today's children. We wonder what has happened to the family. We wonder what has happened to the soul of America.
