Steph T.'s comments about mediocrity got me thinking... maybe the key to combating mediocrity is to stop thinking of our lives (and ourselves) as mediocre! God had a plan when he created us. He knows everything about us -- and loves us anyway! :) I know that He didn't settle for mediocre when He created us.
As a mom, sometimes it's hard to see the importance of what I do... dishes, laundry, diapering, cleaning -- it never ends! Sometimes I get so caught up in the monotony of it all that I forget just how big and important this job is!
So, if we all start viewing ourselves as the exceptional creations we are, then perhaps the things we do will begin to seem a bit less mediocre.
P.S. Hey Steph T. How did you link my blog to my kids names? If I'd known how I would have linked your name with your post about mediocrity so others would know what I was talking about :)
