At the risk of sounding too philosophical, do you ever question why you’re on this planet? Why your children are here? Why any of us are here? Do you ask yourself questions like “What am I meant to be doing?” And by that I don’t mean “the laundry, the shopping and the bathroom cleaning” – I mean it more deeply. Much more deeply.
I’m finding as I get older, that my need to ‘Make a Difference’ is getting stronger. My want to help someone, something, others, is growing, as is my desire to help my kids achieve the same.
Just last week, I was lucky enough to chat with Aussie mum of four, Tracy McCallum. Tracy has been sponsoring kids with World Vision for over 16 years. Recently, Tracy and her husband Murray, took their four children, Tom, Flynn, Cam and Rosie, to Malawi to visit their sponsored child, Giddiness. Tracy shared with me all of the things that she and her family gained from not only their incredible trip to Africa, but also from their many years as a sponsoring family.
Below is my interview with Tracy, and following that, some comments from her wonderful children. I hope you get as much out of it as I did.
