There’s nothing like biting off more than you can chew, and then chewing anyway.

The Hardest Job In The World

 

39 years ago today I started work at the hardest job I ever had. There have been days (many, many) where I didn’t want to even get out of bed and face the day because of it. It’s a job of 90 : 10 percent give : get back …. and don’t ever let anyone tell you it’s 50 :50 percent because they are just plain WRONG! It’s a job that breaks your back, gives you migraines and, at times, makes you rue t he day you were born. You struggle, yell and even hate sometimes (OK, maybe hate is a bit strong….let’s amend that to dislike intensely). All in all, it’s a job no one in their right mind would want, right? NO!!!!!!!! It’s a job millions and millions have entered into despite the statistical probability that about 50% of those who have tried this job will fail. What is this horrible sounding job, you wonder?????? MARRIAGE!!!!!!

The Most Wonderful Job In The World

39 years ago today I started work at the most wonderful job I ever had. There have been days (many, many) where I faced the morning sun with such joy in my heart because of it. It’s a job that makes you want to give 100% of yourself because the reward you get back is priceless! It’s a job that lifts your spirit, brings a song to your heart and makes you grateful every day that you were born so that you would be brought to this place. You laugh, praise it to all who will listen and love it each and every day. All in all, it’s a job that is so fulfilling that it’s hard to imagine anyone in their right mind who wouldn’t want to do it, right? YES!!!!!!!! It’s a job millions and millions have entered into because the statistical probability is that 50% of those who have tried this job will succeed. What is this wonderful sounding job, you wonder?????? MARRIAGE!!!!!!
