The job of all jobs

I love my sleep. I think I could even either be addicted or have some medical necessity to sleep. I think it's because I love to dream. I have always had big dreams for myself. I have always wanted to do and be everything. From president to pope to physical therapist! I have done many things in my life:
I have lived in Temple Terrace, Lutz, Tampa, Tallahassee, Sarasota, Raleigh, Cary, Dallas, Baltimore, Kodiak Brunswick and now Plant City.
My first job was at Remington Steakhouse, I was a hostess, I was 15. I was the youngest employee ever at Gap at 16 (they previously had an 18 and up rule....or so they said) I have sold shoes, I have waited tables, tended bar, a legal secretary,in car rentals and a flight attendant. Whew!

I've recently been evaluating what I have done with my life and if I have served a purpose. Is there something I should be doing? Is their a passion, I should be fulfilling? Am I fulfilled? Do I feel full? I want a job that is like a pupu platter...a little bit of this and a little bit of that.

Is that called "motherhood"? A nurse, a chef, a transporter, personal shopper, counselor, maid and caregiver? I guess, as I typed this out, not knowing where this post will lead, I have just realized I got everything I ever wanted.

I could not agree more. Being a mother fills me up so much more than anything I could ever have dreamed of. Here is to us!

So very well said!! We get to do a little bit of everything just by being a mom. And our little charges give us so much in return, don't they? :)
