The other day the kids were talking amongst themselves in the backseat as we drove to the pool. It was a rare moment of peace and harmony. The conversation went something like this:
D: My fun is video games.
C: D’s fun is video games. R’s fun is swimming in the pool. My fun is riding my bike. Mom, your fun is work, right?
And it occurred to me at that moment what a blessing it is that I can call my work fun. Not everyone can say that.
And now I better get to work!

I agree…it’s fun that my work is my passion. I’m an information junkie so reading/researching/giving my opinion is FUN.
Isn’t it great that we love what we do!
I feel the same way… the only downfall is that when your work is fun, you become a workaholic…. or at least i do… 😀
Don’t you love those glimpses of wisdom and reminders of what must be obvious to the kids’ unjaded eyes? Somehow they always seem to awaken the gratitude….(well, except for when they point out less-charming, yet equally apparent, facets of my behavior/appearance! 😉 )
funny how my kids mentioned this the other day…….older son: “I like to swim.”
younger son: “and I like cool stuff.”
older son: “and Mommy,your fun is on the computer….”
maybe i shouldn’t be spending as much time on it as i do???
You are so lucky that you love your work.
Some days, like today, I consider work fun. I’ve got an interesting bug I found and now get to hunt down exactly where it is hiding in the software and how I can fix it. Plus everyone is raving about how great a job I did catching this little bugger.
Most days work seems like a colossal waste of time. But the pay and health benefits are make showing up very important to our family.
You are definitely blessed! Even your kids can see it!
I had this conversation with my son once.
Grandma asked what he thought mummy and daddy did for a living.
“Daddy makes cars and mummy makes dinner.”
Then he adds: “and they’re fantastic dinners.”
That’s my boy!
The blessing is to love the work you do, and do the work you love.
