Monday Musings...All in a Day's Work

All labor that uplifts humanity has dignity and importance and should be undertaken with painstaking excellence.
Martin Luther King, Jr.

What's the phrase? 'Worlds Colliding...'

It's been a little bit wonderfully wild, these past few days. Our amazing pastor and his wife were so gracious in asking me to speak at a couple of church events surrounding the themes of service and motherhood. And then to make it even more fun, our pastor decided to interview me for his radio program that broadcasts on Sunday mornings. And then to make make it even more fun, a couple of our local news stations decided to pick up on the story.

And so whaddyaknow?

I got to revisit some old vocational stompin' grounds, all in the name of motherhood.

Because back in the day, before the babies and the diapers, the toddlers and the school work and the soccer practice and dance classes and runny noses, I had (gasp) a 'real' job...(you do hear my ironic snicker here, right?)

I worked in radio and television, hosting a morning show, covering news, running interviews, editing, writing, the whole shebang. I left that world to stay home with the kiddos, occasionally dipping my toe back in to do voice over and commercial work.

And so finding myself back behind a radio mic and in front of a television camera felt like a nice long ride on a familiar bicycle.

And this time I got to have my kids along for the ride.
(Post edit: I've had some requests, so I've put up one of the news stories on my main blog page. I'm also including a link to the news story here in case you have arrived at this post via your feed reader.)

So what's your resume history? What was your favorite job? Your worst job? Your strangest job? You can tell me...it's not like I'll got broadcasting it all over the radio and t.v.....snicker, snicker, snicker. Write a post on this topic and put the url of your post and your name in the Mister Linky's box below or leave a comment. Give us a glimpse of your vocational past!
