I am so tired, but after tonight I and a group of individuals will have helped make many, many people very happy and, in many cases, changed their lives and as a result hundreds of children's lives will be impacted as well. That is not an exaggeration. I don't always necessarily feel like I have my "dream" job -- I don't really know what that is, but I do believe I have the best of both worlds.
I have a career doing work I value and more importantly I feel valued by those I work for. At the same time, I only work part time (most of the time) and it is relatively flexible, so I still am available for my kids' activities and can volunteer at school -- hopefully a little more once Spencer is a little older.
Life is good.
