The best job that I ever had would be working at a Carpenter and Reupholster shop. I helped to make beds and furniture, paint, varnish and stain. We built it and repaired it for people on Welfare. I worked from 800am to 500pm. I love doing that job and I do miss it!
I had a lot of jobs and I liked them all. I miss working. I wish that I could be working again. It takes a lot out of me not working. Doing things for other people means every thing to me, because it means give and take not all take and not all give. That is the Truth. I work well with other people. I have a job now and it is babysitting and I love the children. They are very good children. The older boy is 18 months old and the younger boy is 6 months old.
Some of the things I do with this job are looking after the two boys, cleaning house and washing clothes. When it is nice and sunny outside I put the two boys in the double stroller and go for a walk or to the mall. Since I started babysitting I have more self-confidence and respect and it makes me feel like I am on cloud nine. And it makes me feel needed and I get to love them and they love me too because the children need love and attention. Because I have a lot of love to give and now I can do so. So it is all give and take.
