*our* days at work

Let me start out by saying that in no way do I take my situation in life for granted. I consider myself the luckiest girl in the world. I have a loving husband, a healthy & beautiful daughter, a career in this crappy economy and am truly blessed. On top of that, I get to take my daughter with me every single day to work and I couldn't be more thankful. Here is just one of the ways I am able to still get work done while having a desk job and an awake daughter:

She hangs out in the crook of my left knee while it's supported by my right leg. Sometimes she just sits there and looks at me. Sometimes she looks up at my printer for awhile and just gets in a daze. Or sometimes she will just stare and stare at my little "hug me" gorilla that Sam bought me for Valentine's day two years ago. I can't wait to tell her what a gem her daddy is and how I hope she finds someone just like him when she gets older {...MUCH older...}
Regardless, she is an angel and USUALLY lets me finish up my phone conversations without telling me how hungry she is.

I don't know what I would do if I had to go all day long and not see that adorable face of hers. I know plenty of moms do it, they have no choice. To try to make it easier on Sam, I try to send him a picture or two thru-out the day so he doesn't get to missing his girls TOO too much.
I am just so thankful that during this season of my life God has blessed me with this opportunity to raise my daughter and work at the same time. Praise be to God for this simple, everyday life.
