When I was young, sometimes in jest, I would say something outrageous to get a reaction from my mom, Jennie. Most often, after giving me a very shocked look she would wag her finger and tell me not to say things like that because that was bragging. She wanted her children to be humble at heart and with her quiet beauty and strength she epitomized the message that Jesus was showing his disciples about being a servant. He was clear as he offered; “Now that I, your Lord and Teacher, have washed your feet, you also should wash one another’s feet. I have set you an example that you should do as I have done for you. Very truly I tell you, no servant is greater than his master, nor is a messenger greater than the one who sent him” (John 13: 12b-16). Jennie lived her life willing to give love and help anyone she met. In our family, there was always room at the dinner table for a visitor or there was plenty of floor space if someone needed a bed.
