I looked at her with stars in my eyes, like I had just landed a lucky leprechaun.
Though she shook her head at me and told me how much she hated it, I couldn't imagine a better job. Paid to sew!? ... I was young, and I had never heard of that type of job.

I'm grateful for all the opportunities that have come my way. Blogging it has opened SO many doors. I'm honored when my work affects people enough to cause them to react and love something I've made. I like that I can still make a living while bringing some happy into someone's life. It's not crisis response work, but it's all related I suppose. Am I talking in circles? Well, mostly I want to say thank you - that you keep coming back, for supporting me in my endeavors, for your reactions and interest in my creations, and for your company via comments along the way.

So there you go. I really and truly enjoy what I do. If this is mid-life-crisis, I'd say it's turning out pretty well. Linking to Friday Felicities ...because I like it there! : )
