Tonight, I watched my sister-in-law’s pinning ceremony to become a nurse, and I was proud. As I sat there, though, I also felt a sense of worthlessness. I never went to college. I never pursued a career. I never made big money, or accomplished something great with my life. After I slid into my car and started the drive home, I really contemplated this feeling. Some people are called to do really great things with their lives. Some people are gifted to care for the sick. Some folks have a knack for turning everything they touch into gold. Some souls are destined to educate the masses and do it well. I am not one of those. As I walked into the door of my home and saw my husband and sons sitting there…as I snuck into my daughter’s bedroom to lay a good night kiss upon her sleeping brow…. as I surveyed the scene of a loving, happy family; with clean clothes, full bellies, and warm toes… I knew that my calling was different, but still of a great importance. If not to you or anyone else, it is important to four wonderful, precious people. And I felt a reassurance that I am not worthless.
