The Hardest Job I'll Ever Love
Teaching made me grow. It turned me into a tougher, more mature, and more responsible version of me.
Later when I was expecting my first child, a friend told me that being a parent would be the hardest job I would ever love. I thought to myself, "I've heard that before." I had an idea fatherhood was difficult, but I assumed that it wasn't going to be that hard for me.
Parenting is really difficult; ask any parent. Kids (especially infants) need constant attention. The never ending diaper changing, feeding, cleaning, and entertaining is both physically and emotionally draining. (I haven't had a full night of sleep in almost a year.) As tiring as parenthood is, I absolutely love it.
It's always an easy decision to get up and do whatever needs to get done no matter how difficult the task is or how tired I am. Love makes it easy. I feel blessed and fulfilled every day.
I love being a father; it's the hardest and most important job I'll ever have.
