I not really ever sure how to respond when people say, “do you work?” I really don’t know where to start. Where I am now is usually in saying, “stay at home working mom”. I don’t know if that even makes sense. My job as a wife and a mother is my first responsibility, but I have never been able to sit still. I had my first job [besides working for dad + babysitting] in high school at the car wash. drying cars. I loved it. I didn’t have to work, but I loved it. I worked pretty consistently in the summers of high school + college and some during the school year in college. Retail, leasing, hosting, labor, camp jobs, whatever. I did it all. I always wanted to be a hostess at a restaurant…never did that 🙁 after college I worked in fundraising/development for a rodeo, I taught 3 year olds + helped coach cheerleading, worked for a christian rock festival, the united way, an amazing ministry and then started my own photog biz. Not too long after, I stopped working for the ministry and then later started working with Noonday. Soooo…I’ve probably had more jobs than the average person.
I am an all or nothing person. It’s just how God made me. and when I get really excited or interested in something, I research the heck out of it. then I usually say yes and do it. then I make fabulous relationships through it. and I spend a lot of time on it. whether that be adoption, photography, missions or noonday [and whatever else has yet to be].
Right now my world is consumed with my babies, my man, this crazy holiday season with noonday, lilliesofthefield insta store, writing on this here blog, and planning a blogger trip! so. I’m tired. I get exhausted but I also get rejuvenated with the busy. it’s a weird mix.
am I alone? what re energizes you when you are busy?
