Official Job

Work is vocation.

It is a sacred calling.

God initiates the hiring.

He sustains the doing.

My work as father involves being involved.

I get this strong feeling that I had nothing to do whom to father.

I just know of it as holy.

I was merely favored to join God in raising Kara and Nika.

Sweet but Brief.

Kara: Dad, guess what?
Me: What's up?
Kara: I just got my New York State License!
Me: What happens now to your Texas one?
Kara: Yup, I'll miss that one ... they took it away.
Me: Uhmm.
Kara: Your little girl is officially a New Yorker now, Dad!
Me: I'm officially missing you ... now.
