What Do You Want to Be When You GROW UP?

How many times did you get asked when you were younger, "What do you want to be when you grow up?'

I always thought being a flight attendant would be the coolest job out there!  I looked into it and was crushed when I found out my eyesight was not good enough.  I guess in the event of a emergency you need to be able to see to help your passengers -- even if you lose a contact.



Fast forward to present day.  I am a wife, mother to two teenagers and 3 pups.  I have a pretty good gig working at my kids private school.  The hours are good and I get a nice tuition discount.  No complaining.

Still, many days I wonder....is this where God wants me to be?  Am I serving Him?  What exactly is my purpose?  Do I have any spiritual gifts?  When I leave this Earth, will I be remembered for anything worthwhile?

Does your mind ever spin like mine?  I used to be caught up with what the Jones' had, how they got it and how in the world could they ever keep it?  Then I finally had a light bulb moment.  Who cares what the Jones' have?  What Marty and I have we earned ALL BY OURSELVES.  No help from family -- Just from our own hard work and that was a huge accomplishment to me.

I AM content with what I have.  I REALLY AM.  Material objects don't seem to matter anymore. 

I am blessed beyond measure.

 I do not desire a high paying, high pressure job.  I DO HOWEVER, desire my work to matter to someone or something.  Maybe it does?

But am I doing everything God intended me to do?  Have I grown up?  I don't think so.

As I ponder over these deep thoughts, I wish you a safe and happy weekend!
