My Real Job

Re: my last post…


Did you (like the rest of the world) read this compelling, tear-inducing article in the NY Times?


Sometimes, like everyone, I imagine, I need a giant smack on the head about priorities and overthinking and worrying and spirals of doom.  This was that smack.


My real job with these boys is love.  I guess everything else will work itself out.  No, I won’t stop obsessing, I’m sure, but maybe I’ll tone it back a bit and focus on the loving just a little bit more.

Sylvie shared the link on facebook yesterday. Nothing like a good dose of perspective, eh? Reminds me to chill out a bit. :)

I have to say that I posted the link on facebook yesterday after reading Amelia's post :-) This story was so touching and really rang a bell for me too. Thanks Amelia for writing about it!
