project31 - day 20

20:: Write about your job and why you love it or hate it.

Oh..... here we go!!

No job-hating here!!

I am finally living the life I have waited for for years

I feel blessed to have had my years of teaching in a great school district, but there is no way that you can give 100% in any area of life when you are a wife, mum and working woman....I don't care what anyone else says....there are always areas that suffer.

My life is free from the chaos of rushing off to work
to get my job done
to rush home to the kids
to get my job done
and repeat
and repeat....

No, it's not an easy job
No, it's certainly not glamorous
No, it really doesn't pay well - in a monetary value

But these days that I get with my girls
are days that I can never get back
days that will be gone sooner than I care to imagine
days that teach me more about myself and my role in their lives than I will ever be able to teach them!

Making this choice in "career change" has certainly been a huge adjustment as far as finances go, but this is the job that I have been called to
these are the people who I have chosen to be my employers
and as much as there are moments in some days when I wouldn't mind getting back in a classroom, it only lasts a moment....and I am quickly reminded of my blessings

and how incredibly blessed I am to be able to stay at home
