It’s funny to me, that, you never know when a conversation will end up being one that’s indelibly imprinted in your memory banks. Today I was thinking about a dialogue I so clearly recall that occurred seven or eight years ago. My son-in-law, Josh, asked a most interesting question.
If you could have any job in the world, what would it be?”. We went around the table, and it was interesting to hear the wide variety of answers. Josh was the only one who was able to say, “I’m doing exactly what I would do if I could choose any job in the world.” I totally understood that, because he’s passionate about his work and almost every aspect of his job seems to be custom tailored to his temperament and talents.
My outside-the-home job for over thirty years was a wonderful career as a registered nurse. I worked in the obstetrics department of a local hospital, taking care of new moms and their babies after delivery. I really enjoyed my work, but I can’t say it was my passion. And I certainly never had a desire to climb up the hospital career ladder.
When it was my turn to answer the question, I stumbled a bit. I said, “I’m not sure exactly, I think it would have something to do with food since I’ve loved to cook ever since I can remember. It wouldn’t be a restaurant, not a catering business…. maybe a cooking school? The conversation ended that night and I still had no idea what that “dream job” would be for me, except that “It would have something to do with food.
It’s interesting how life changes. If someone asked me that question today, I could honestly give the same answer as Josh; “I’m doing exactly what I would do if I could choose any job in the world.” Yup, it’s true. My full-time job these days is The Café and I can’t believe I get to play in the kitchen all day, testing, tinkering and creating. Not only that, I get to do it all with my best friend and husband, Scott!
