I found out last night that Divine's band teacher travels 60 miles each way to get to school. My first thought was Crazy! Why would he do that? He was previously retired before teaching at their school, but came out of retirement to continue doing what he loves.He said sometimes he'll gaze out the window at other drivers on the way to work and say, my job is better than yours.....I have the best job in the world.....I'll bet you don't love what you do like I do.
Did you notice Claudette's necklace matches the artwork?
It made me smile to think how he revels in sharing his passion. And then I thought, wellwaddayaknow! I get to do what I love and share it, too. I will confess it's not all fundge sundaes and freshly popped popcorn. There are moments when I lose it, get frustrated, annoyed, and angry. Probably too often. But. I do what I love. Ryan and I get to help raise these souls we've brought into the world, watch them discover their passions and become marvelous individuals. The cherry, which is a mighty big one, is that I get to sew and create while I do it. How incredibly superb is that?
Thank you for being part of the audience to my chaotic, messy, beautiful, loud, glorious, delicious, nonsensical show I call life.
In case you wondered, Divine performed particularly euphoniously and loved the perfumed peonies, and Drummer's favorite part was...the drums, of course.
