As the job search continues, dirt under my nails makes me feel productive. A constant reminder that while I may need to scrub up at a moments notice, life is in the doing. Pulling weeds and planting seeds, a metaphor for life to be sure, keeps me grounded and gives me purpose. These humble tasks are important. Removing obstacles, cultivating relationships, sharing the fruits of our labor – this is work, this is life.

Couldn’t agree more. 😀
I’ve been thinking about you and was planning on dropping you a line in the next few days. Hope things are going well.
I think you wrote this delightful post solely for my benefit, as I sit, covered in sweat and dirt and mulch, crazy earthy. Love you for it.
A great metaphor, Stephanie. All of those job interviews are seeds that you have planted. Something will sprout, in it’s own time. Happy Mother’s Day (early).
