Today after 12 years at my profession I finally hit what I call a golden moment. It's a point when you can say to yourself " I truly love my job!" I was given the opportunity to take on a difficult, painstaking, job that nobody else wanted to take on. Not only did the customer love the finished product but also bought me lunch, tipped REALLY WELL, and sent a friggin email to the owner of the company! Have you ever done something that you are beyond proud of, that you've put your heart into? If so than call it out to the heavens!!

It's an $8,000.00 garage door. Wood was imported from Africa, carved, stained, treated, in Annapolis MD. Darn thing weighed 425 lbs. That's pretty beefy for a single door.

WELL, I feel clever now.

And yes that's pretty cool. It's very satisfying when a customer takes the time to say something like that.

The question is have ya ever had a moment that you are proud of? When you finish a job and after working yer tail off it all seems worth it.

I feel that after each exam I pass, I have added another brick in the wall.

That is a beautiful door my friend. Awesome work. Congrats.

I do love my job. It's my dream job. Have wanted to do it since I was a teenager. Took a long time to get here, but it was worth it.

No idea what to do with my life yet. I'll be patient.

Wouldn't say I love it, but it's all right. The money is good. Well, for someone who lives by their self.

Chuckle chuckle snort snort! Ya did make me laugh, but keep in mind there're kids present! Not all cr peeps are past the age of the Adult Conspiracy To Keep Interesting From Children. (That's a Piers Anthony joke)
