I started out as a teacher, became a door-to-door encyclopedia saleslady, then decided head-hunter was for me. I stopped questioning for a few years when I married and gave birth to three beautiful children and started working the hardest job in the whole world—Mom to three preschool munchkins.
I quickly fell for every schooling thought process that came along—homeschool, only way to go; public school, be a light in the world; private school, semi-protect your children. My whole life was wrapped around them. The day came when I was supposed to help direct my own children into the right career for them.
Wait—hold the phone—at that time, I was still trying to figure out my own path for when I grew up. And now in the empty nesting stage of life, one child has moved back in with us.
So what would God have me do when I am all grown up? I think I know. I realize it is little pay for many hours of cooking, cleaning, counseling, consoling, and cajoling—but it’s all very clear now. I can “C” God’s career for me.
I now know that Motherhood is the only career that offers no retirement, but gives long lasting rewards.
