The joy of work.

Tonight’s “two good things of the day” from son number two included one we used to hear often: “Work”.

It’s amazing how wonderfully happy I am to hear that from one of my children. Really: what more can you want than for your child to find something he enjoys doing–and gets paid to do it?

But for the last four weeks, he, too, was home. He was not happy about it (although he admits to a new appreciation for government programs like unemployment). He missed work.

A silver lining of being out of work? Appreciating getting to go “back to work”!
