The Best Pay Cut of My Life

“Joy is a net of love by which you can catch souls.” -Mother Teresa

Some of you may not know, but I took a part time position this year to spend more time with Jude. It was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made in my life for my family. I love days off, especially when I get to watch him develop a new skill. This week we spent time together helping him build his little foot muscles and by Wednesday he was pulling himself up in his crib.

Years ago, when I worked at the Second Family Childcare Center I would often take photos for each child’s portfolio. Now, I get to capture Jude’s daily accomplishments to show Ken and our family. It’s just as sweet as I remember it being. I look forward to years of this. Until he runs from the camera and tells me to go away.

Looking at these photos makes me realize that life is short. Do what you love, love what you do. There’s only one life to live, so make this one count. xoxo
