The best job of my life

Image

You know I didn’t just walk into this job knowing what to do, the only training that I had was in books and through observation.  To be honest it has taken me years to learn this job, and I am only really grasping the job description now.  It hasn’t been a walk in the park, in fact there has been times that I have been stretched beyond my known capabilities.  It has been life changing, I am not the same person I was.  I had to adjust, adapt.  I have cried, yelled, laughed, stressed, never slept well since starting it.  Have you guessed what I work as?  I work as a mother.  I have now been a mother for over 7 years.  Every thing has changed, my marriage, my perspective on life, my priorities, but to be honest with you I wouldn’t want it any other way.  I hear parents say this a lot that it is the hardest, but most rewarding job they have ever done.  My son is now at school, my daughter is at kindy and soon will start school, and we have a another little one on the way due in September on the 17th.  Life moves fast when you have kids, they always seem to be in a rush to get to the next step.  All the while I am just thinking slow down, don’t be in a rush.

Last year when I was given the task of photographing a series for my studies I decided to document real momemts of my life.  In some ways it is a look at what I do from the very ordinary and routine activities to the heart-felt family activities.  I invite you to come on a journey with me.

About Vulnerability of the heart

I am a wife, a mother, and a treasured child of God. My Christian faith is my source of strength. I’ve fallen into the depths of despair and been carried out of it in the loving arms of God. By His grace I have been healed. God has taken me on an incredible journey. I have experienced the painful things of this world and discovered in them God’s love and faithfulness. I believe in a merciful God who has never left me. He is forever faithful.
